Thank you to everyone who wished me well in the past six months! To be sure, it has not been the best time of my long life, but thankfully things are better. I’m back in York as of May 30, in a nice apartment in the Leisure Home – furnished and ready to move in to when I got here, thanks to my good friends at Adopt A Pet and many others who gave furniture and household items. Having become homeless and faced with starting over, these kindnesses are beyond ordinary expression. You’ve made my re-entry into some kind of life in York pleasant, seamless and gratifying. To each of you who helped, I send humble and enduring thanks!
