Ha, I guess too late for me to worry about not
reacting. I needed to respond to that e-mail, so I
did. The emotional results were predictable. I'm going
to be staying in my little corner here until I can

Something will work itself it out. It always does,
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
