    I walked out to the mailbox this morning, dreading the trek because of the insufferable desert heat even at mid morning. I open the mailbox to find a brown package from Arizona. Could it be? Could it really be?

    I rush back in side, the girls still eating breakfast at the table and singing their ABC's. I ripped open the package a little too vigorously; the card has a slight tear in the corner now that was not there before, I am sure. I place my hand inside and hope...

    As I grasp the contents and whisk them from the envelope, there is the blacksheep. Oh, the CD I have been waiting for. Gingerly this time, I open my treasure and set it into the kitchen CD player, sit back with my espresso and wait...


    Oh León, it is simply enchanting. The girls and I dance all morning long until they could no longer, and I carried them to their bed for a dream day.

    On our long afternoon car ride, I brought you with us, as I have done with the few mp3 of yours that I have. It was like returning to the dream of blue turtles, only better. All of my problems melted away as I drove, lost in your songs, memorizing line after line. Road rage... not today.

    And of course, you, as giving as you are, sent me another present that I so did not expect, yet cherish immensly, and guard jealously.

    Thank you, sweet soul. Thank you for sharing yourself, and thank you for allowing me to call you friend. I am blessed to have you and your captivating music in my life.

    Yours within the Spirit,
