So my friend Mike in Arkansas

has two young boys and one

was walking through their

house one day, age 6, and

he saw my son's book on the

table Mike had bought and on

the cover is a color photograph

of my son when he was 4 years old

holding a guitar already like a pro

walking out of the woods and

Mike's son Owen pondered the

cover photograph and asked,

"How did that kid write a book?"

And his father told him, 

"One page at a time."

Owen and I (Rachel and Arthur too) just back from our retreat we organize each May on tradition and community restoration. Today is Owen's 6th birthday. What a gift to read your poem as he turns another page.

stay close,
