“People are just dying everywhere, all the time, every which way,” she wrote. “What can the rest of us do but hold on for dear life.”

I thank you for that random day in the earlier 2000’s that I met you in Chicago and you shine that effervescent smile and encouraged me to press on,  to write, and to be an optimist.  

I thank you for The WONDER book, and the Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life, and Duck Rabbit.

I thank you for everything and everyone that you left behind better for reading, knowing, and admiring you.  



A huge Thank You to Two Writing Teachers for your vision, your encouragement, and 30 days of writing.
