I had a friend | colleague who called me Petal, she also called me cherub sometimes, but Petal was her name for me. She’s English, and the sound of the word sounded sweet from her lips. I know nothing about her now, haven’t for over twenty years. She’s one of the most precious and fun people I’ve had the pleasure of befriending.

Just read

“. . . from above the cherubim . . .”

and immediately thought of her.

Ezekiel 9

If you ever hear from her, let me know.
