. . . by the messages of support I've received since telling you of my upcoming surgery. I have no fears or anxiety regarding this ordeal, as I have complete trust and confidence in my doctors. I simply wanted to say 'Mahalo' (Hawaiian 'Thank You') for your many comments and concerns.

As for the foto, it is the vent in Halema'uma'u crater where super hot gases have heated the rocks to the extent that they glow at night. The little 'stars' around were the first indication I had regarding how dusty my lens was...but I kind of like them. (This is where the plume shown in other fotos originates.)

    A fitting and apt picture, when the heart has fire the rest will look after itself !
    Your faith and trust will see you come out at the other end Tom, I firmly believe that.

    Best wishes always

    Dearest Tom...So good to hear from you...
    Keep on holding your positive intention.. If you believe in your capabilities and dedicate yourself to the creation of some form of resolution, you will be surprised to discover that paths that were once closed to you will miraculously open.
    Always thinking and praying for you..
