  1. This is some of your best writing, Pam. I am not a writing instructor, so I won’t analyze it. So much description, so many ideas and contrasts in so few pages. Perfect. And, of course, the special joy and sadness that speaks to me as an insider.

    • Thanks, Joel. I did not see that you had read this and responded until just now! Thanks for reading…and yes, it is sad. But I’m moving on. 🙂
