What an amazing project!!:-) Your poem is beautiful in it, Rachel. You must feel thrilled to hear it read outloud like that.

Thank you, Faith! It was really neat to hear it read out loud, and I love the way Catherine bound the poems together with her own words.

I came in from The Back Window. You have just suggested a book of poetry I might want to get.

Through the Back Door! That's where I came into your blog. I'm always thrilled to meet new writers.

Rachel, your poem was fantastic to work with, both the audio and the video. When James read your poem, he fell in love with it and really pushed to do it, and he did it so well that I just loved it all the more. I thank you so much for contributing, and now that I've finished the work I have to catch up on all your latest posts! Expect me back soon to do that, right now I'm still in arm recovery mode, but I just wanted to come over here and say hello and a great big thanks to you.

I loved your poem and its interpretation in Catherine's production. James read it beautifully, and I have to go back now and read it again.

Sounds cool. Poetry to voice is something entirely different, and evocative.

Lakeviewer, it is actually a video, not a book. Free to watch via Catherine's blog. Enjoy! And, Welcome! Great to meet another of Erin's readers. :)

Cat, thanks again, and heal up that arm of yours, ok? I watched your other two videos on YouTube, and you are one fantastic, creative video-maker!

Karen, Julie, Erin, Sawan-- thanks all of you, for your kind words and for checking it out! Karen, I love it that we are both in the video. :)
