I’m in the US and I read it. A friend and I had a business together for quite a few years. We would have been thrilled with the local coverage they’d started getting...but absolutely over the moon, if we had been featured by national news. So few people have such a stroke of luck! Think of all the struggling authors...”full many a flower is born to blush unseen, and waste its sweetness on the desert air.” (Thomas Gray) This wasn’t happenstance. They’d been working hard to achieve coverage of their lives in order to sell their books. It doesn’t matter how WE view the interview...because it’s not Oprah...to a couple with a small business this should have been a wonderful, exciting advancement of their goals and dreams. Something wonderful for Esther to come home to. But she doesn’t even mention it. Or if she does in the last video call, Dan chooses to keep that private...while publicly repeating her personal endearments to him. One last thought, if Dan reads here...what area of our discussions might give him hope? I don’t think he’d be offended in the least that we discuss clues to ED’s state of mind...or that her disappearance might be related to her state of mind and not a terrible accident or a homicidal fellow hiker. Why...because that theory offers at least a semblance of hope that she is alive somewhere and he will see her again some day.
