Dearest Scott,

I’m back to leave another message after thanking you profusely for helping me get thru what seemed an insurmountable mountain of grief several years ago. Pearly and myself are doing much better and on our way to moving to a new city! A lot has changed in the last few years but my love of this podcast remains steadfast. Of all the changes in my life, I know I can come right back here to lose myself in a world of fantasy that will make me feel comforted, intrigued, absorbed, challenged, respected anew (plus too many other adjectives to list). I relish your words, losing myself in your prose. This is truly your calling and I hope you can continue singing these stories for generations to come.

Thank you again for being there in my darkest hours even if you never realized it; you will never truly know what you have done for me.

- Chey and Pearly ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

P.S. Tiny is still my favorite!
