    I’m so sorry to hear about your friend. It is so senseless when someone who is trying to make this world a better place is stopped short.

    I hope that all his family and friends can remember him in he humor and light he seemed to spread to everyone he met.

    I really was touched by the memorial pages set up for him. What a loss the world has experienced

    Hi Heather,
    I just discovered your podcast, and I’m hooked. I’m sorry to hear of your friend’s loss. It’s doubly hard when violence is involved. You painted a very descriptive picture of him.

    I haven’t used a rigid heddle loom before, but I think that the idea is that warping the reed through a small hole and then a long slit is what creates your shed. You should not need another reed, since it is intended to be a two-shed system. But I’m sure that a creative, determined person could rig up other harnesses!

    sounds like an incredible man — why can’t they stay here longer? Concolences…………I’m in DC but homebound.

    Oh, Heather – well, I wasn’t one of the folks who wrote already – but oh, I am sorry about Thor. Thank God you had such a cool guy, even for a short time. Please accept my sympathy.
