Stephen Mr. O'Dean. Thank you for your invitation. In 2002, approximately, you recommended Kenneth Patchen to me. Thank you for that. I have no idea how people find the time to participate on this website but my guess is that they either read quite a bit more than I do or spend alot more time talking about it. Either option might earn my admiration, but suffice to say that I rarely find time to sign on or participate, which I'm sure can only be counted as my own loss... Is that a Sears portrait? In sepia-tone it is hard to tell. I think maybe you are in the woods.

S.B.

Eric Hi Larry -
Thanks for the invitation to be friends on this here. I read pretty broadly, but . . . there's no accounting for taste, and mine is far from pristine!
Cheers,
Eric
