    First, CONGRATULATIONS!! I’m so happy for you, and glad that you’ve come through your recent illness. Prayer does work!! I had contact with Julie, throughout, so she kept me up to speed about you. And just so, we concentrate on her brother John.

    Second–I’m so sorry about the stalker, and hope that is a temporary issue. Again, congrats and best wishes for continued good health and success. sincerely, Caddo

      Thank you Thomas,This is such an emotional thing for me,as a child I recall being told that “who did I think you’re kidding” that’s not poetry,you’re stupid and the like,but beneath all that negativity were the words of my beloved grandmother urging me to dream the improbable and go for it.She was and remains the greatest influence in my life and though she’s been gone over 30 years her love legacy lives on
