Gloria, I hope things are as good as they can be given the circum-
stances.
I send you light and good energy for these hard times. This is a time
of vio lence and yet a time of love, too, a time for meeting one’s own
shadow and that of the human race for what it really is. I feel that
what we do now counts even more than it ever did. Cada quien su
granito de arena, but with good intentions. It’s all we can do individu-
ally. The rest is so huge. I was just wondering what the new millen-
nium was bringing and here it is. . . . This is like a purging fire to burn
out, albeit with the blood of innocents, the mess we’re in. . . . Maybe
the new generations can start living for a new future. . . .
