This Made Me Cry
I received this email today ...
"Dear Mx. Ralph,
You don’t know me, but I’m a game design student at Drexel University. As a queer, non-binary developer and game history enthusiast, I really look up to you and I feel really inspired by you and your work. I recently played Caper in the Castro, and I decided to donate some money to a local, black-owned HIV/AIDs charity in Philadelphia. As a student, I couldn’t donate much, but I just wanted to let you know that you’re still making a difference to this day. <3
Every now and then the Universe bestows a gift like this to me with a message from a total stranger. They usually arrive right when I need them most. When I'm feeling old, alone and forgotten.
What a wonderful gift it is to be reminded that we are not alone and that something we said or did made a positive difference for another person.
Thank you, Camryn
Until next time ...
