Joanne,

Your support and head-banging empathy are so very much appreciated.

Words of encouragement like yours are precisely what keep writers like me writing. Where were you when I was in the 2nd grade!!

We are fragile creative creatures, we writers. We need to be told it’s okay to come out and wordplay.

And that is no joke.

Thanks for your generous and caring respect, Joanne, today and every day.
