      who gives when they have little.  I'm OK but I am struggling with college for my three kids.  I'm glad that my only contributions are to the arts and politicians ... ones I believe in.

      The true danger in politics is when people in power elevate ideological purity over their basic humanity, empathy, and common sense. -- thereisnospoon

        Allie, how's your friend?  I found a new book with a forward by Rick Bass.  

        "Alaska Wilderness--Exploring the Brooks Range" by Robert Marshall.

        My favorite book ever.  I recommend it for your friend, if he's still hanging in there.  For you also.

          that diary.  I spent the night with him and his wife and a few other close friends.  It was absolutely terrible.  He looked like he was 100 years old, very frail and he couldn't talk.  His mouth was open and he would only respond occasionally.  I had decided to buy the book of Dylan lyrics that someone recommended and a different book by the Dalai Lama.  We all read to him that night.  I am so glad I was there.  

          I also bought several other books from the list just for myself.  I feel so close to the DK community weirdly.  It is such a funny thing to care about people you have never met.

          love and good thoughts to you,

          M
