this is going to seem like i'm ripping off DE's memoir and backstory, but a while ago i went to an online dictionary to look up the definition of dynamic as a starting point for a six. while i was working mine out i checked and found DE's memoir. decided to post this anyway - doubt DE will mind :) anyway, the merriam-webster definition of \"dynamic\" is \"pertaining to physical force or energy.\" how utterly inadequate to describe our DDC! here's my definition (and please feel free to add yours!): steadfast in love and open-hearted enough to share her story; a source of inspiration to others even in the midst of pain. deeply admired for her strength even when she is struggling and fears that her strength is failing her (because no one can be strong all the time.) much-loved member of the SMITH village.
