Friends for 25 years, I had my own room at Thea's house, for visits from afar. Coffee tasted best in Thea's house, in her kitchen.
In the hey-day of social work and family therapy, we found creative strategies and totems of healing ways.
In the hard times we held each other up in sunlight of news, philosophy, and fertile mountains of bless.
In the best times, rain showers settled like drops on red roses, belief in new blooms.
Thea lived in the cause for peace and justice, and I hope the flowers will keep on blooming.
Rest in peace, Thea. Day is done.
