Melvina, from a friend in a far off land I'm so glad it wasn't your time. I loved every line you have written here. What a loss it would have been if you had gone. The way you say things are so clear. This is a beautiful piece. Thanks so much for sharing it. David

A wonderful description of the cusp of life and death. It contains great truth - and a significant lesson. What is our time - except this moment? Where does the time go? I do not know.
