  18. Dear Brian,

    “Come close and bid me farewell;
    Touch my eyes with smiling lips.
    Let the children grasp my hands with soft and rosy fingers;
    Let the ages place their veined hands upon my head and bless me;
    Let the virgins come close and see the shadow of God in my eyes,
    And hear the echo of His will racing with my breath.”
    – Kahlil Gibran.

    Take care, my friend. Hugs and love from Toronto.
