Of scotch and flames
By danmas on Dec 03, 2008
Tonight I got a card from a friend of mine. It was a little card, and it was a thank you. In that card this fellow was thanking me for a bottle of scotch and a kind note that I had sent him due to a recent loss. He quoted Albert Schweitzer, and likened me to someone that helped his flame (at little bit) back to life. The card couldn't have come at a better time. I am not up to the praise he gave me, but, it helped a lot that he felt better. And, I felt better by his gesture.
Marine, if you read this, thank you. I needed that in ways you can't begin to imagine.
"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being." A. Schweitzer
