I am hesitant to share personal emails, as I am wired to loyalty and such abstract concepts. I hope what I write doesn't betray the confidence of an Internet friend. No less a friend in our times.
Charlesius I, and Comrade extraordinaire has informed me via 2 emails that his health isn't serving him well. Out of respect for his privacy, I won't add details, but will once again wish for him the best, and offer the thought that this world is a better place with his wisdom and enthusiasm.
For you Charles, if you hear this. A small token of appreciation for who you are, what you have been, and what you continue to contribute.
Against the Wind.
