Yanti

a very good friend of mine from graduate school is seriously ill with cancer. got the news today through a friend. it's hard to feel fine. like i absorb the pain and it has no chance of lifting. but as my hands worked on the letter, i felt the spirit surge as i nudge 'You will be alright. You will be alright. You will be alright.' and indeed she will be alright. either way, she will be alright.
