“Hope is a good thing; maybe the best of things. And a truly good thing never dies”

–Andy Dufresnes, The Shawshank Redemption.

Benevolent Friend has given us that-hope. Jean, Kathy and I went to talk about our dilemna with her this afternoon. This came about on the off chance that Bob Warhurst mentioned her name when speaking with Kathy and who should be right there, but Benevolent Friend!

She used to be on the board of supervisors for Fairfax County and is now a land use Consultant for Adams & Associates. She told us “This will happen,” meaning our building on Hearthwood. She told us that it was obviously a political decision that County Hydrologist Guy has made and that she would help us get through this. It just might take some time. Time we have.

Jean and I are alive again.

Thank you Kathy, for meditating or whatever you call it:)
