In listening to your interview with Joanne this evening, I was literally brought back from the brink. I have been in great despair over a lot of things lately; the least of not, dealing with breast cancer.

I am a poet as well and have long put that part of my life on the back burner. No more.

The words she read from Rilke reminded me that a gift is not a gift unless it is shared, given away... and so I will, with whatever time I have left on this tired but beautiful earth, give away what God has given me.

Thank you for the wonderful interview and may God bless you, Joanna, and all who bring beauty into the world.
