  1. Am really enjoying the poems in your advent book. As we’re not on constant wifi I just pick the book up last thing at night and read the poem of the day but jumped ahead to your sonnets for the antiphons. I am really impressed and love the spiritual and poetic experience of reading them.

  2. I am so enthralled by your choices, they seem to get better and better every day. But even I know that is not true. I am saving these emails so that I can go back and back again.

    I will miss you so much when this ends.
