Reminds me of a Stevens' poem, "Asides on An Oboe", a line that reads something like the man of diamonds who in a million voices can sum us up. I know you know it. [or woman]

all love,

Donna

Hi, Donna,

Here I am coming in later than usual (autumn outdoor work will do that) but yes, I know the poem, and of course in Michaux's hands, it can be distilled to a few words.

Trusting you both are well and staying warm
all's well, Bob
