The joy of having a mailing list with a few hundred recipients is that when I send out news, I get responses. Sometimes, a few hundred of them. That happened most recently when I sent out my “good news to share” missive explaining that I am cancer-free after my surgery.

The only problem is that responding individually takes time and I ran out of time before we left to take Ben to college last week. So while I’ve now resumed replying to emails (in the order received!), I’m only about halfway through the list at this point.

If you’re one of those whose kindness I’ve not net acknowledged in kind, please accept my apologies for not doing so yet, and know that I will do so soon! And also please know that I appreciate, beyond calculation every word of support and love I’ve received.
