Since Starboard at Midnight has been out for a while, I feel heart warmed and nostalgic after receiving a letter from J Kent H. Young, a contemporary of my father Karl Behr’s younger sister, Sally. His having taken time to write me a wonderful hand-written letter [with welcome praise] recounting that his parents were friends of Karl and Helen’s –noting that he was in personal touch with them during times gone by at Pretty Brook Farm, and highlighting their hospitality — has made my own memories all the more cohesive, reflective and fond.
