Dear Ginny, Andrea and all the rest of us.

it seems that  we have very few degrees of separation in this world these
days,  and American  or Canadian, or  ???  we are so deeply affected by
this tragedy. i have  relatives who have lived  and taught in Manhattan for
decades, who i know are safe, but have surely lost  colleagues and or

It must be so difficult to be so far from loved ones, and I send my heart
felt sadness and support to all those who are experiencing  loss at this

I know a  flood of language is welling up out  there  - but I  think it
will be our acts that shape the outcome for the next while.

bless us all at this time.

together, there are depths of unknowing." Mary Catherine Bateson, 2000,
