With everything so loud in our world, I send out to you and yours, a most joyful and quiet whisper-out for a peaceful and safe holiday season.

It was my birthday and I was rehearsing lines for a play about Oscar Wilde. I got a call from my father saying that my mother had died. He had been worried that she was sleeping late and went into her room to check on her. He said that when he touched her, "she was so cold."
