  •  Thanks much for this, OPOL. I just told a friend (5+ / 0-)

    of mine today about the death of a mutual friend of ours a month ago. Just now on the phone. Brought up a lot of sadness for me, as this friend, Dennis, was a very kind and sweet, loving soul. Very spiritual-- he'd meditate 6 hours a day, and had a great sense of humor too. A dear friend. Dennis had many, many friends and he touched so many people.

    Your diary about Ben somehow makes me feel a lot better. I always liked Ben Masel's contributions here, and the tales of his activism. That's all I knew of him. So I thank you for this tribute, both for honoring Ben's memory and for its secondary impact of helping me with my friend's death. Perhaps in part the way you have brought out all the beautiful things about Ben in this and the other diary helps me remember the beautiful things about him and about my friend who passed. Thank you much, OPOL.
