Dear Janushka Mirianov Waltonski:

Yeah, this name is a term of endearment, an alternative to calling you honey, a way of honoring your spirit full of adventure.

We went to Lindsay to do some minor repairs to the house and ended staying overnight. Enjoyed the hospitality of your neighbours and had a wonderful visit with Anne. It is overwhelming to see how much they love you, I am sure at some point in time you loved them lots as well. May God multiply this love which must come from him in the first place.

I feel very moved by your reactions everytime we travel outside of Toronto. Is as if an eagle would have been set free from a cage: your face lights, your breath slows down, the wings of your soul open and all of you soar high, efortlessly gliding in that space between the palpitant brown earth and the blue sky. You are a woman of open spaces and expansive skies, of woods and rolling hills; your heart carries the the beat of the rain and sings the song of the flowers, of the wheat fields, of the corn, a song to the maker of all. On the way back we were given a spectacle with a breathtaking sunset. You know how much in "sync" you feel out there, but also you know that you have a call to work in the city for now.

When we got home we received a call from Sue, she shared the touching news of a pianinst who met you 12 years ago and has not seen you since, who heard about your ordeal and sent a generous donation for the dance! We all were very moved and took this as another statement about you, about how much people love you because you truly, earnestly, abundantly loved them .
