Yet, she is like a lighthouse.
When you least expect it, her brilliant light explodes into clarity and words that change the world. David, her son takes as many down as he can and shares them with me.
Over the next while, old stories and new moments of Dana will be noted. What Dana Says is worth pulling close and holding tight.
The grueling freelance gig coming to an end, there was a faint light way in the distance beckoning a visit to Dana.
How is she doing?, I wrote her son, David, my Boy Next Door.
His reply didn't surprise, but still saddened. She had had some rough weeks, was frailer than the last time I visited, wasn't walking a whole lot. And yet....
"I gave her some yogurt the other day," he wrote me. "She said it was delicious. I said it was because it was Greek.
And without missing a beat she said " Their yogurt is better than their economy.""
