From Jane

I myself especially enjoy the poetry of William Cowper and unpleasantly highly entertained by The Mysteries of Udolpho, written by Anne Radcliffe. But for my own part, if a book is well written, I always find it too short. I declare, after all, there is no enjoyment like reading. How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book. When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library

Good morning. This is Steven. Thank you for sharing this and posting it. It was beautiful to listen to. I have a lot of your poems to reply to. I've listened to them, but I haven't really thought of exactly what I want to say in my reply. But I've been following your poetry closely. It's beautiful. And I like this idea of writing letters to our favorite old personalities, some of our favorite old authors. So maybe a way of keeping them alive

And the choice of your words and especially the last line, don't forget to dance in life between beginning and ending in pages. Also very beautiful and special and invoking or evoking a sense of wonder. So thank you and really loved it. Appreciated everything that you did with this concept. Congrats. Thank you

Oh, this is delightful. So tender, so earnest, so timeless, so current. And also, clearly came, always channeling, came quite effortlessly to you. I so enjoyed this, and I also took a lot of this to heart. I think it's just the sincerity in the way that you've evoked that sentiment of exchange and support and solidarity and curiosity between two women, two learned women. I loved it. I really loved this

Thank you so much. Love. Yes it very much felt like a channeling and also while I was writing it to someone it felt a lot like I was writing it to my younger self. So I too took a lot of it to hard and kind of wished I had someone like Jane to life coach me so to speak. But that's what her books do I think for a lot of us. All these great authors do for us and you my friend with your poet tree also do for us
