From a rainy porch, riffing gratefulness for friends with kind words and packages, minimal commentary about ridiculous Olympics and various public health situations, hello to my favourite arborist and rain songs ++ tree doctor tests, Kerouac exhibits, future global expeditions with in-laws and importantly, the elusive D chord.
Grateful to those of you who gave me a place to sleep, a hug, answered the phone, rescued me, put up with me, let me send you postcards, reminded me of important things, told me I was useful, etc. in this past year.
Generativity, Gratitude, Gratefulness, Sincerity, Understanding, Intrepidness and True Unconditional Love.
These are/shall be my hallmarks
May our gentle friendship revolution continue in perpetuity.
Barbara Jane says: Dave, my first love at 5 years old – first long haired dude I loved…so great to see you buddy! Thanks for hosting an amazing gathering in memoriam! Thanks for visiting and happy travels 🌏⭐️. — with Dave Olson at Wasatch National Forest.
Must not forget to say a thousand and more thank you’s for all that post cards, envelopes, letters, vinyl, drawings, and other sentiments and sweet thoughts which awaited me upon my return from Jamaica.
Really needed the affection & inspiration as I received some extremely saddening and frustrating news upon my return.
Really need to catch a break here but with exceptional friends like you, I’ll keep on putting on my big boy pants and trying to rise to each challenge the world throws at me.
