It's friday and I just learned about Lyra. Vicky and Nan I have just left your wonderful tribute to her and I'm pretty broken up. I know I need to leave my office and go home but, I can't seem to leave. I know many of you must be grieving as I am, not to mention, David and her family. I didn't see the notice in the paper and I would like to stop by since I live in her neighborhood. Amazingly, I didn't have her actual address. But I'll try to see if it is listed. My thoughts are with her and all who have loved her. Blessings to her and the hopes that her peaceful spirit will spread across this troubled world and leave her mark.

Sincerely,

SimplyGold

I'm sorry, my friend, that you were not contacted otherwise, but thank goodness we do have this place to check on our friends, neighbors, both close, and across country... and across nations...

I cannot number the times I have come here to check on our poetry friends from all over when we hear of natural and man-made disasters....

SG...we are with you....hold on....

SG, its been a really stressful week in so many ways. For me, it included losing poet friend Lyra Tuesday, the war in Iraq, and a major blizzard in Denver that kept us all indoors for three and half days. I understand your feelings.
Hugs to you. I know Lyra would be the first one here to comfort you, if she could.
allow yourself time to cry, reflect, write a poem, visit the wonderful site prepared for her, and then pick a favorite environmental group to donate to, in her honor. Peaceful thoughts to you, Kacy

SimplyGold, Lyra was my dearest friend. I am not doing too well myself. I miss her so much. Email me if you want.

Sunshine,
Midnitesun, Smartchick, Nan,
How we all must feel? I share your grief and though I know that time will heal us, I also understand that this pain we feel for Lyra and our troubled world makes all the more valid the appreciation of Lyra's life and our hope for humanity.

Bless you. You see if not for Lyra, I would never have known of you and your poetry. I would never have known of all of you.

She has forever impacted my life!

SG

SG ~

All our hearts are heavy. I almost emailed you because I hadn't seen you writing any poems, announcements, or replies to our poems for Lyra, and I began to suspect you may not have heard of our chipmunk leaving us.

I read the title of Titia's poem announcing Lyra's passing, and it was one of those shocking and emotional moments that you always remember where you were and what you were doing when you heard it...

Let us all join hands in prayer for our beloved Lyra...

Warm hugs to you, Dear Heart,
EA

EA, and all,

I could not sleep last night and finally connected with David. I plan on seeing him this afternoon. The people who have come to pay their respects have gone now and he faces the days and nights alone. I will visit today and share with him all the caring and love that has been expressed for her from friends at Pip.

Yesterday was bittersweet for me. I was estactic upon receiving the email letting me know that I had been accepted into the book, it was then when I logged on that I learned of the news. I came crashing down for if not for Lyra I would not have known about Piptalk and all of your wonderful poetry. She was the one who encouraged me to share my poetry, her poetry my inspiration, her friends became mine. It is not fair that she gone.

Yes, I will remember where I was upon learning of this heartbreak and I for one will never forget her.

(big hugggssssssss) Oh Electra, I know how hard it must feel, dearest friend, I too think it is not fair and all our hearts are still heavy I believe as she truly set an example of the most pure love and grace, just as your heart possesses! Her love and friendship will never be forgotten and in her name I will continue to rebel in protecting the environment and "real" freedom, but most importantly, for love.



God Bless You and Lyra's family, I send angel hugs out to all of you of healing!



Love,
Noah Eaton
