A friend is a friend is a friend, but is that friend there for you when you need him? Peter is! Peter, Marash Girl's father's name, Marash Girl's father who is no longer with us . . . Peter, Marash Girl's friend and neighbor, a friend indeed. Yesterday Marash Girl received a desperate call from Western Massachusetts . . . Karoun Yoga is to open on January 22 in West Springfield, Massachusetts, and essential ingredients of the studio -- large pieces of furniture -- were in storage here in Newton Corner. But how to load them up with only one person who has poor spatial relations . . . A call to Peter, and moments later he was there, eyeing the pieces that could never fit into Marash Girl's station wagon, thinking and rethinking, despite the cold and the dusk, in the gathering darkness, and an hour later, every piece of furniture was jammed into that wagon. His comment? "I don't think you're ever going to be able to get those pieces out!" How he did it, only MIT knows! Thank you so much, Marash Girl's friend in deed!
