To Julia: (a Sweet and gentle friend)
From: Mr Bill

Let us pray for our sister
Let us hope for a friend
the battle isn’t over
praying for a happy end
Let our hearts be forever hopeful
And our hands like hearts that bind
As we stand here right beside you
In our thoughts gentle and kind
We are with you in your journey
And our sadness holds us here
Praying for a better day
With our hearts lightened with cheer
We know our lives are guided
By some greater plan
So we hold on to each moment
And we do the best we can
Let us pray for better days
To spend more time with you
And hope our prayers are answered
That’s the best that we can do

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
