"I'm a brand new subscriber, [Ed. to the Poetical Journal] (from Washington State), and I just had to write and exclaim, "WoW!" after having looked through your "Eternal" section (NGC 4151 took me there).

I have an older site (2+yrs), with some similar thoughts, if you're curious, at http://www.geocities.com/beo-elysia/ElysianLibrary.html Keep up the great work ! -- or perhaps I should say -- Keep going thy great way !

Just looked at your great Web Site once again and it really is a great place to go to when one needs a bit of solace - could stay there all day. Today, we received your very generous gift of your book in the mail and just couldn't wait to open it - was very much a surprise to us. The staff were just as eager to read it also. It still pleases us greatly that you would have considered us worthy of your very generous comments and to put it to print has left a tremendous impression with us.

To us, the Kaimai area of Tauranga is still one of the most enjoyable and scenic areas in the Bay of Plenty and intend to be here for many years - God willing.

"In reading a new website, I discovered this stunning poem by John O'Donohue written as a blessing to his mother on the death of his father and thought you, too, would appreciate it's wonder: And when your eyes / freeze behind / the gray window / and the ghost of loss / gets into you, / may a flock of colors / indigo, red, green / and azure blue / come to awaken in you /a meadow of delight. Such a rainbow of thoughts for a snowy day, almost certainly one of grief somewhere." – Elinor
