African Hips Don't Lie


20 January 2011  –  This has been an incredibly sad day for me.

I log onto Face Book every morning, and was met with messages of condolences for Dawn. It took me a moment or two before I realized what it meant. Shocked, I audibly sat on my bed saying the word “no“. I got in touch with a mutual friend of ours, Tammy who confirmed the sad news.

Dawn and I met via Angel’s blog many, many years ago…. and although she seldom commented here, we would e-mail. Dawn is from the area I live in, but had relocated to New Jersey, USA some years ago. During my divorce she sat with me talking for long periods of time to help me through dark moments on Skype, she sent books, notes, thoughts… I helped her with her mom’s pension ’cause I work for the company that administrates it and can honestly say she was one of the wisest, most compassionate, sincere, loving and humble woman I have ever met.

My picture today hopes to symbolize how friendships are formed online that last, that are real, that touch and change your life, although the closest you may ever come to “touching” is reaching for your computer screen. I am deeply sad at Dawn’s passing and I wish her family a long life.

Joisey Girl – I will miss you with sincerity and think of you with much affection. We both know you saved my life that night. I hope to do many mitzvahs* in memory of what you did for me.

I wish you enough,


*A charitable act – a good deed.
