Ya know... when things are tough..... friends are very precious. Some friends go the extra mile....
i am very lucky that i have found such friends in The Heron Clan.
Back in March Raheretic suggested that i pack up my bags and come down and visit them. Unfortunately i was working (that was before the "i wanna die" virus")
It was suggested i could come in the summer.
And there it sat for awhile. But that whisper of a hope/plan got me through some pretty miserable days. When things would just hurt so much - i would take out the "visit plan" and hold on tight.
We moved from emails to actual chatting (thank god for the miracles of all things internet) .... one evening Raheretic brought up the possibility of a trip to the Ann Arbor Art Festival - my excitment grew
Yesterday - or maybe the day before - i heard from The Heron Clan. Plans were coming together - when was i coming (dates) .. a flurry of emails later and it was all settled.
Swan posted about it yesterday on her "We are in Go Mode" post. Another flurry of emails between The Clan (as i am coming to think of them) and myself..
In July i am going to visit The Heron Clan!!!!
