Ho-ping, and you?

 Just resting in hot bath with lavender oil, listening to John Prine and/or Supertramp, McCoy Tyner –thinking about cyclones, colonialism, glen canyon & post offices. The usual.
Wondering what’s up with you. Enjoy knowing about your actions & dreams. #Hoping you are splendid. Do tell.
