I received this coin from a dear friend, one who understands hospitality in the ancient sense, is intellectually vigorous, and great fun to play with. I carried it for longer than I meant to, but I'm ready to pass it on.
I am giving it someone who definitely rises to the level of "chosen family" for me. A friend and colleague whose kindness and perception have been both anchor and lighthouse at different times in my journey. She is a minister who embodies the vocation as few ever manage, and a sense of humor large enough to encompass the absurdity of life. I'm sure wherever this coin goes after it leaves her possession it will be enriched for having spent time with her.
