  1. You got me with this one, Crystal. I picked up crying where I left off last night listening to the report on NPR about Parliament singing the Canadian national anthem and thanking world leaders for their support. I am so sorry for your beautiful city and so thankful it was no worse. As for those simple words of Barbara Winters, how true and pure.

    1. thank you, dear one. It’s been a difficult time, but there is hope from her and from the others who were helping. I want to be this kind of passing stranger.
