This made me smile, T. Old friends nourish our souls. May you continue to be nourished and soothed.
Dear T., I hope that lovely doorstop, the OED, adds to your feeling of still being yourself in spite of the hurt and betrayal of late. I hope it stabilizes you, reminds you of the gifted writer you are, how language can anchor you--and that the OED is a marvelous anchor.xo
oh lordy, we're in for some trouble now!(for all you not-T.'s, her puns are already killer. Now that she has more ammunition... well, let's just say I'm ordering a flack-vest on Amazon.).wv= suckstI dedicate it to you (your recent past, not your future).
Now you'll be able to reach when a lightbulb needs changing!!
reunited and it feels so good....
Like a long, welcome visit from a very smart friend. xo
