Alida, congratulations! He's such a terrific writer. (Unlike most people, my favorite Beagle book is A Fine and Private Place I really liked The Last Unicorn but I loved "place". And of course, there's the novella "Lila the Werewolf" which used to crack me up.
Dance your little footies off, Kiddo, after a coup like that, you gotta dance!
Good luck with the organization and keep taking deep breaths. Best of luck!
