Sophie will one day love this post. We were at the library last weekend and all of a sudden Sophie looks at one of the bookshelves (filled with 100's of books) and yells out "Mom, Grumpy Bird"! Sure enough there it was, she could spot that book spine a mile away. Sophie too loves that book and I'm sure to hear "looks like I'm walking today mom" from her one day in the future. I will reply "that's OK...as long as you’re walking it will be ok". We miss you dearly and can’t wait to “walk” with you very soon. My love, M.

dear Trudy,

I have sent those lines from Grumpy Bird to at least three friends and relatives - and included my thanks for the ability to walk, even skip a step or two on a bright spring day. My youngest sister is a choreographer who has been creating a work based on Amelia Earhart, which will premier in a week, a piece about the love of flying which has a line in it about falling up into the beautiful bowl of sky - using photographic projections of kids on swings, trampolines, teetertotters, skateboards in and around her dancers who are on trapezes - with lots of spacious blue beyond. But I'll bet there are plenty of days when she feels buried in all the details of organizing this production, and so I sent her Grumpy Bird's words, hoping they will bring a smile to her as they did to me. In fact, I think I'll see if VIRL has that book. . .
love to you, with wishes for a stroll through blossoming streets today

On Tuesday I found out that Trudy has cancer, I didn't know that! I was shocked and sadden and angry and all those things that we feel when we have bad news.

Today I am reading her blog and crying and laughing and enjoying and suffering with her and with all her friends and family and Gottfried.
Oh I am so sorry, I will pray for you all.
