because of a sick cat & bad dreams abt Dad I had a sleepless nite.

so it was lovely to turn on the computer & receive this African word from Bob Barnes. I met Bob in a chat room some 7 years ago. altho we've yet to meet face-to-face   we're fervent penpals exchanging numerous e's per day. today he wrote abt encountering this word which means I am because we are.

apparently Mr. Rogers discoverd the word & wrote to his penpal "My identity is such that it includes you and that I would be a very different person without you".

Bob wrote "I really liked the concept of abuntu and thought of
you when I read that." such kindness from Bob eases my difficult morning & makes me want to walk thru the day.
