Jeeze Bob,

How is it that everytime I visit
the Birdhouse I find you've an-

ticipated where my head's at?

No sooner than I decided to re-
visit Fanny Howe and just yester-

day pulled all of the titles I own
by her from my shelves - scarce

little, I'm afraid - that I step
into the Birdhouse to find you've

hipped me to her most recent work..

Go figure.

Some I sit enlibraried somewhere
in Central Mass with her Selected

and The Winter Sun, Notes on a
Vocation, before me on the table

and jot this note to you.

All best,

These are the sort of book notes I love, John. It finishes what little I started.

It's been awhile since we've had word from you. I like knowing you're right where you are, keeping it true. Here's hoping you feel the same!

all's well, Bob
