Meg, you are gifted in a number of ways. In reading your prose and poetry, I am confirmed in my knowledge of you as an artist. Anyone who can write good poetry is, IMO, a very good writer. Some of us cannot take our writing into that dimension.
Your generous “take” on the value of art, whether landscaping, architecture, painting, writing or just creating in general, is well thought out and very reasonable. Thank you for all of your contributions. I have learned a lot from you.
