Bright hopes scrawled there by my virgin hand:
   a veil, a flower, shining silver,
   a maiden mother and her child,
   an apple on the heavy fruited bough
   fallen, ripe and gold, into her lap.

   The veil is torn, the flower wilted,
   the ring has dropped not to be found again.
   The mother frowns, the child cries,
   the apple rots beneath the summer sun.
These things remain here only in my ink.
Cheery aren't I?

Oh, my dear Charity,
This is very well written, but it sounds terribly sad.
How are you?

It has been an interesting year, but I'm doing better. I'll be starting a new job the middle of August. It's with the same companies, but a rather different spot. The good news is that I'm going back to work for my old boss. Given that I have described my career goal as, "Work for Kiki", that's a good thing.

Sounds like you have been through some deep water and dark valleys.
