    Thank you for the memories

    Thank you to the little things
    More lines from a thank you note... And thanks for thin crusted pizza shared with a beautiful lady thanks for the quietness of this afternoon thanks that today's news makes me weep for the sound of sisters voice calling from the coast for memory of these trees before they became so tall thanks for the Andre Rieu choir and George Harrison singing my sweet lord for unrestrained anticipations for dreamless sleep Many thanks

    Another thank you note
    More lines from a thank you note... Thanks also for last night's bright rounded moon for circumstance to cease all and see such incredible indescribable beauty for a time to have almost no thought of me for deep breath and stillness thanks for three pieces of pecan pie found in the fridge left behind from last night for two small girls in California and for when we sometimes talk for Sir Paul and Billy Joel Many thanks
