Many heartfelt thanks to all who have read my first book of poetry, Unmasked; most particularly for your responses. These have been extremely insightful to me. Your own personal responses have given me new windows into understanding the un-thought avenues that my poetry have lead each one of you. This has been the most exciting and fruitful experience hearing and reading your feed-backs. And in that, I have been able to expand and deeply appreciate how poetry is always in the “eye of the reader” not the poet’s per-SE. I am happy and very pleased that my own personal, idiosyncratic experiences and affects and emotions did not preclude nor color your own personal emotional lives. I feel that poet and readers are in a mutual human cocoon where there are no boundaries that separate us from our mutual humanity. THANK YOU!
