In Memoriam: John Carley

I remember his prompt of 'karumi' over at the August 2012 NaHaiWriMo. I came up with:

thoughts of you
a shift of light
on the mountainside

So poignant now.
RIP John Carley. Thanks for your teachings and your friendship.


  1. John Carley has passed away? This news saddens me so much! RIP, John Carley.

    1. Yes, I am sorry to write. He fought cancer for a long time, and has now passed on to another journey. Such sad news this morning.
