Chico wants you to know how important your 'comments,' emails and notes are to him even though he is too exhausted to respond individually. He finds them uplifting. Right now he is having a blood transfusion-his third in 11 days. Again we are reminded of the many people, often anonymous, who are making his recovery possible.
Yesterday,coming out from being under the effects of anesthesia, Chico remembers having conversation with the San Francisco poet, Robert Duncan, and a couple of other poets. This was an encouraging reminder of the vital importance of everything we experience in the process of our life's work.
