you know--and i'm sure you know--how synchronicity happens? i was just feeling mildly bad about both the seemingly-impending war in iraq. and also how i tend to keep in touch with friends really poorly.
and so what happens to cure this? i visit your blog--always a warm, friendly, intelligent place--and you announce you are marching for breast cancer research. i need to make more money than retail so i can give it to people like you who walk the walk as well as talk the talk. literally. i am being 150% sincere here, despite my recent "incommunicado" status. sorry.
you can post this on your site if you want. i am honoured to know you from this one gutsy and committed act.
just say walk!
