Thedmo Pink and I attended the beautiful memorial gathering yesterday afternoon.

I was very moved by all of the speakers' tributes to Oakley Hall.
He left quite a legacy, not just in his brilliant literary work and loving and accomplished family, but in forming a community of artists and humanitarians (is that the word i'm searching for?) to carry on his life's work. My impression of everyone in the room last night: kind people engaged with life--observing it, describing it, supporting or making art from it, and in their own unique way fighting to better their corner of the world...

I admire Hall's novels very much. He is an inspiring man who loved deeply. It was a privilege to be at the event yesterday.
