...it is this element which rises from the scene, shoots out of it like an arrow, and pierces me. A Latin word exists to designate this wound, this prick, this mark made by a pointed instrument...punctum.
- Roland Barthes
The late, great Nona Rae Lynch. Vivacious and lovely dance instructor to countless kids in my home town of Pullman, Washington. I will always remember her off to the side of the set at Spokane's KHQ-TV all the times I tap-danced on our local televised talent show, Starlit Stairway. Murdered in 1979, Nona Rae and her husband Bob will always be remembered as kind, loving, and generous people. The world is a lesser place without her.
