I had planned to write a different piece today but I got blindsided again by news of another friend diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. This time it is Karen Ashley of San Francisco and the person in charge of the West Coast Dowsers for the last several conferences. She is also the best “face reader” I have ever met. Not only was Karen diagnosed with cancer but she was put in hospice very quickly. For those of you who know her, please send your love, flowers or whatever feels best to you. Dick Tippett is her loving spouse.
