farewell sweet volcano

How do we respond when our main street begins to be demolished?

Some of us watch; some of us turn away.
Some of us talk with others; others stand in silence.
Some of us bring candles, acknowledging the pain of not being able to repair our treasured buildings.
Of course, some of us stitched.

How did you respond?

Farewell sweet Volcano.
Thank you to Lois, Peter and all the people who worked to make this a special place.
A place that we carry with us beyond the earthquakes, the bulldozers and the fences.
