|My beloved brother Wes|
About ten days ago I had the biggest lesson I hope I ever get about the laws of impermanence. My beloved brother Weston, who was my companion on the trans-Atlantic crossing last winter, was killed on August 18th. in Searsport, Maine. He was 58. He was an amazing man, brother, son, father and uncle, who was in the happiest chapter of his life.
As you can imagine our family has been devastated by a tornado of shock, disbelief, and deep, deep grief. Following this turbulent storm has been a tsunami of love and support.

We are sending out prayer flags weekly. Dozens have gone to Norway, to India, to Portland Oregon.

My intention to hand deliver hundreds of prayer flags to NYC and Ground Zero has changed due to this traumatic turn of events. My efforts will be closer to home.

I will be shipping prayer flags to NYC to at least one site, The Carter Burden Center that has welcomed them with open arms. If you have contact information for additional sites, I am still seeking locations.

Here is one last photo of my brother, as he adjusts a helmet so he can take our 90 year old mother for a ride on his antique Triumph. Ride on Wes...we love you!!
Thank you to all who have sent love and prayers. We are surrounded by your healing love.
In Peace, in love ~ Sarah
