[-empyre-] farewell to 'what is to be done?(education) incollaboration with documenta 12 magazine project


I'd like to join Aliette in thanking you for the work you do with Empyre,
and in the world as an artist--your presence is an enrichment of our world.
In fact, such is true of Aliette and Critical Secret, as well as so many
other fine projects and contributors that regard this environment.  It's
great to be with you all.  Merci. 

My condolences and sadness for this loss...


Dr. Nicholas Ruiz III

Please believe that we trust in your charismatic freedom online, without
hard conflicts despite the good hard oppositions without which there is no
symbolic voices.

No current censorship ; mostly generous and charismatic curator of our
respective differences and oppositions. That gives a brilliant list from
social and intellectual singularities, depending our generation, our culture
our locality in the world.

Sometimes the subscriber are tired or having too much work offline or
difficult things from the life to resolve or to assume and then they deviate
for a moment instead of failing on-line ; the last end of year and this
beginning of year they were, I mean, very difficult cause all sort of
problems in this actual world...

But there is nothing worst than lose a beloved being.

Condolence and love, Christina. Think your sister, help your neices and
nephew. Take care.

Be proud and have peace.

See you,

Thank U.
