1st day of Spring - last night long nights journey into day




Fred is making significant progress. Days are still reversed with nights sleep-wise, so that is a problem the team is working on...
Drew and Meg are both with Pat & Fred now. that is an odd reunion and very sacred for us all. we expected a family reunion on the west coast at the beach...instead it is in EMMC hospital rehab.

We are grateful.
Fred is having his second Reiki sesion with Howard - a marvelous human being. It REALLY helps.

much love to you all for your thoughts ,letters, love and acts of kindness.

You pop into my head several times a day, Fred. My mom had a stroke years ago and I learned that patience is more than a virtue, it's a necessity. And that strokes are really interesting. Horrible, yes. But interesting, too. If your car breaks and you get under the hood to fix it (if anyone does that anymore), you learn a lot about cars. Well, when your brain breaks, and you go about fixing it, you learn a lot about people. Just think about all the "stuff" you'll have to work with when you get back to the workbench! Can't wait to see the work that comes from your enormous talent.

Love, Lissa

I was a student of Fred's last May. I loved the class and learned so much from him. I also really appreciated his disposition and his sense of humor. I've been looking forward to another class next month with him.

As my small get well gift to Fred, I will hold those memories I have of him in perfect health and I will continue to look forward to another class with him, whenever that may be.

Hi Fred and all,

I'm so glad to hear that recovery is going well and to see pictures of the family there and the reunion. It is funny how things go. Tom will be with you in one week. We are heading to Sitka tomorrow to get Pat's paintings and see Chris and all. Funny how all of these people are coming together in unexpected ways. Relationships evolving.

I was looking through a craft magazine last night and stumbled on an article about PMC. Ah, Fred again. You're everywhere and in all of our thoughts (mine, Tom, my mom, my sister, many coworkers of mine who don't know you, but know that it has been painful for me and Tom to have you hurting.) We're all sending good thoughts for a healthy recovery.

Much love,
Lalena

Alright, Fred, Let's Play! Your inspiring words echo in my head when I'm at my bench and I hope they're echoing in your head now. You have some busy playtime ahead and I can't wait to see what that quirky and imaginative mind of yours comes up with.

I know that you will come through this and continue to do your most special work. Know that all of us who love and cherish you are holding you deep within our hearts as you and your brain learn to get along again. If there's any thing that you need from us, please, please let us know. With love to you and Pat,
Linda Kaye-Moses and Evan Soldinger

Third day of Spring! Full moon last night!
Yes, family reunions come in all forms. I had one last Spring, under strange circumstances, that was one of the greatest blessings of my life. So I look at those pictures of all of you and feel the same huge blessing. Meg, Andrew, Pat, Fred and not so far away Thomas. All of you are held together, at this time, by this great man Fred. You are a miracle, Fred. You are amazing, Fred. And I love you with all my heart.

Oh and P.S.
So I opened my dictionary for a little afternoon reading and this pops out. Circuits, Circular, Circular Breathing. I thought of Fred's circular thinking process and thought of us all pulling together to breath in a circle around your family circle.
Sort of the word of the day.
Love,
