Ida, please kindly forgive my very, very late response to your kind comments. I’ve been training for a huge adventure to Africa, did it, and am behind. I don’t name him but he is James Rumbaugh, as in the two star who was the commandant of Walter Reed before his untimely death after a skydiving accident. Well loved, well-respected. Of course he was.

The ultimate gift he gave me, Ida, was emotional freedom. I chose to take that lesson and have it make me stronger. Too often those events rob us of so much of our lives. I took mine back. Took me decades, but I did. And that is for me the best outcome. He’s gone. I’m still here, living an extraordinary life. Works for me. Thanks for your thoughts and wishes.
