Thank you for your excellent work on the poster project... it is thought-provoking, attention-getting, appropriate to the theme, and contemporary. I love to see it hanging up around campus (and I've heard great comments from others)! . . . . Thanks for your wonderful contribution to this event.

Working with you has been just a delight! I like the way you think!

R. LANNAN

Author/ Editor

In writers group the other night, I got to share what you taught me about . . . filtering the story through unnecessary language, creating distance between the reader and the experience . . . . no one could tell him exactly what he did to keep us at arm's length. I got to share with them what you taught me, and a lightbulb when off in many peoples' heads.

I reworked this poem with your suggestions in mind.  The poem seemed to work better ....  made me feel more powerful.

I'd like to meet the man you wrote about in my artist statement. He's one helluva guy.

The first photo is a photograph I took out of the airplane, the second photo, I was inspired to paint what I had seen thousands of feet in the air and the last photo, Polly Alice McCann created my logo for my business.

My friend read the artist statement you wrote about me and she said it was more like me than anything she had ever read. You really get me.
