I wish to thank all of you who stepped up with your help, sup­port and en­cour­age­ment af­ter my header down the base­ment stairs. To my dear friends whose im­promptu visit had them find me at the foot of the base­ment stairs, sit­ting in a pool of javel with my left leg akimbo, and called 911. To the first re­spon­ders who se­cured the area, made it safe for all the rest who were to fol­low, kept me calm, and as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble and made me know I was among friends. May your eardrums mend soon. To the paramedics whose skill and in­clu­sive man­ner kept up my con­fi­dence and got me to the hos­pi­tal in a good mood. To the ferry crew who had the ferry wait­ing and gave us pri­or­ity board­ing. To all of you who pitched in to care for my pets, Effie and Timi, and make sure that my home was se­cured while I was away; and, be­yond all imag­in­ing, cleaned and pre­pared for my rental guests who had no idea what all had gone into mak­ing their va­ca­tion homes just as lovely as they had ex­pected. To all of you who have vis­ited, of­fered to help now and in the fu­ture, sent cards of en­cour­age­ment and brought food pack­ets. You are all the em­bod­i­ment of the most ideal com­mu­nity that any­one could dream of be­long­ing to. I thank you with my eyes brim­ming over and beg you to please keep your stair­cases clear.
