    You use language so meticulously, so skillfully, so impeccably, so thoughtfully - to explain, to enlighten, to enrich, to inspire. And yet your poetry is so much more than mere words. It is beyond language - beyond translators. Thank you. Love, Allie xxxx (Report)Reply

    Michael,
    What a beautiful message! I'm more than honored to read this. I love the 'What you think you lack - give that! ' line. You managed to put into words so many of my thoughts here. It's so nice to read your work. (My hours are shifting at work so I will have a little more time in the AM now) Great work as usual... you always manage to impress with your class. Love, Mary
