A place for family and friends to see what I'm up to. Visitors welcome here.

Hail Guest, we ask not what thou art.
If Friend, we greet thee, hand and heart.
If Stranger, such no longer be.
If Foe, our love will conquer thee.
-Old Welsh Door Verse

Facebook family.

Today on one Michigan friend's status I keep tabs as her daughter, a Disney castmember in Orlando, fights for her life.  The status immediately following is an exultant post about a Colorado friend's "perfect" day at Disneyland Anaheim with her family.

Later, the Michigan friend posts that her daughter remains in critical condition, on a respirator, unresponsive.  The post immediately following is from my colleague (who teaches art in the classroom next to mine) who shares a picture of her holding her minutes-old grandson, born this afternoon.

It's hard to find an emotion to hold onto.

I suppose love will have to suffice.
