What a long strange trip this has been so far. On June 14 I learned my old friend T was facing cancer surgery to remove his prostate & another surgery to repair or replace a Stent in his right kidney. He is alone in Florida, & intended to do this whole thing by him self. […]
Love this Fire & Light company! Russel treated me, with the beginning of my collection: These are seconds! Spent a wonderful sunny day in Arcata then had dinner at Kim and Tony’s and went to Eureka’s Arts Alive. Very fun. Life is good.
Helen would of turned 86 tomorrow, December 19. I miss her more than words can express. I mentioned here how she had just returned from spinal surgery.

My friend Helen Stowe is finally back in Garberville, at Jerold Phelps Hospital, after spending 3 weeks in San Fransisco at St Mary’s. She has had back surgery and is now recovering.
