Australian poet and blogger friend Gabrielle Bryden has written a poem about my koi and remembers our mutual friend the late Paul Squires in whose poetry magic got caught using words.  I feel very honored to have my koi swim in a poem, and when I tell the koi they will be splashing.  Read it, experience it,  here.

    it would appear as though I am not quite sure where I am heading with my future career. I have enjoyed following your art-rich blog for a while now, and I wondered if you had any advice on how I may go about choosing a path, or how I could go about expanding my portfolio; you seem like the right person to ask.
