Just thought I'd show you the Macbook Air 11 that I was able to get because of your wonderful generosity.   Thank you, again, so much!  I am currently in the San Diego Central Library, working on new plans for the blog. :)

In Today's Email Bag

I checked her out, and she is legit. Her books are even on Amazon.com, and are ranked relatively high. She is listed as "N.M. Kelby." I am honored by this. Murder At The Bad Girl's Bar and Grill

Dear Mr. Barbieux,

I just wanted you to know that you and your blog have inspired me.

My new book, Murder at the Bad Girl's Bar and Grill (Shaye Areheart Books) is a "tiki-styled retelling of Macbeth set in south Florida." The story centers around the "death" of a homeless advocate named Peter Mackay who has a blog called www.thehomelesssoul.com.

While the book is funny, it's also deeply rooted in tragedy.

After reading your blog, I wanted more people to know about the life of the homeless in America today. And so, I credit you in the acknowledgments. And, if you go to Peter's website www.thehomelesssoul.com, you'll see a link to your site.

I hope this helps shed more light on your mission. Homelessness in America is very difficult to understand. I'm hoping more people will take the time to read your blog and figure out how they can help make change. My husband and I donate to Catholic Charities and Goodwill, but that sometimes feels as if it's just a small token gesture given the profound difficulty of the problem. So, I'm hoping that this book will help in some way.

I'd like to send a copy to you. Should I use the General Delivery address on your website?

Once again, so many thanks. I wish you well. I'm glad things are going better for you right now. Sleep is always good.

Best wishes,

Nicole Mary Kelby

Africans call it ununtu botho (ooh-noon-to boo-to). It means the essence of being human. It speaks about humanness, gentleness, hospitality, putting yourself out on behalf of others, being vulnerable. It recognizes that my humanity is bound in yours, for we can only be human together.-Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Full Circle

Just a little over 18 years ago, I watched my son come into the world. Born at Baptist Hospital, I was there to witness the event.

Yesterday, I watched him take that ceremonial step into adulthood as he accepted his high school diploma.

I got to shake his hand. He gave me a hug. I got to tell him that I was proud of him. He gave me a smile, and told me he was glad I could be there.

He was given the John Philip Sousa Award.

Because the person who gave me the ride down to my son's home town, about an hour's drive from Nashville, had to get back, I couldn't stay too long. But it was a good few minutes I got to spend with my son. Quality time.

My daughter was there too, and though at our last encounter she seemed a bit leery of me, before I left, she came around from her mothers side to give me a hug too.

I couldn't have asked for more.
