Good morning Everyone. Thanks for all of the kind expressions of good wishes and concerns that you shared with me last week.

Good morning Everyone. I hope this finds you all well. Happy New Year!
In case you missed the announcement that went out to the mailing list, the short of it is that my computer has somehow been compromised and is spending the weekend with the folks at Charlotte Street Computers in Asheville.
As soon as it comes home - midweek, hopefully - a notice will let you know that it’s up. I really appreciate your forbearance.
Walk in Beauty,
Don

Beyond the Hundredth Meridian, in the high desert country of Southern Utah, public lands are imperiled. Though they are not our doorstep here in the East, they are our heritage, they are ours to preserve. Democracy does, indeed, perish in darkness; and darkness is a metaphor for many things.
