A note to my unknown reader

Dear Sir or Madam,
Thank you for your generous and unsolicited donation. It was a pleasure to find in my PO Box today. Be assured that this gesture on your part will be used and appreciated by Olive. I try and often fail to thank those that donate. I would thank you personally except for the fact that I cannot determine which one of the 2,197 citizens of Castle Rock, Washington you might be.

Best always,
Gerard Van der Leun

And Olive the Cat, her mark:

    Time for another photo of The AD Editor-in-Chief, this time using/appreciating the kind donation from Castle Rock, WA.

    Gerard: That such a modest donation would be recognized on your main page was both totally unexpected and at the same time deeply humbling. A simple anonymous note, in first person voice with a deliberate tone of a simple gift from one person to another. A mention of a favorite essay on that name engraved in stone. We are contemporaries in time, if not in place and certainly not in experience.
    I simply have no further words…..you are welcome.
