  1. Hello, I came across your stories through Google Alert. I look for folks interested in our Mt. Hood area, mainly to direct them to my information site. Your story compelled me to read it, as the word “Kurd” drew me in. I have a heart for the Kurds. Long comment, short…you are a very interesting writer. A bit dark for me, but so word picture perfect that I could see the goat that was sacrificed for the barbeque. I have to-do piles that will never be accomplished, but I took the time to read, and now to write, as I want to tell you that I appreciated reading your story. It added a bit more color to my Sandy day.
