|Karen Baxter Kelemen self portrait|
Pain says, PAY ATTENTION
There is its gift,
Sometimes it is gnawing,
Like wild dogs breaking bones to the marrow.
Sometimes it is insistent,
Like someone pounding on the door who just won’t go away.
Sometimes it is unbearable,
Yet, somehow I endure.

The last evening there, our Uzbek daughter, Feruza, and her boyfriend from New York had dinner with us while on the way home from a Utah camping road trip. It was so nice to see her in person, if only briefly. And it was the first time Mark and Neal got to meet her.
