    I have been soaking up your new album around my apartment for weeks–after lurking around to “Song of the Unforgiven” for the past couple of years, it’s a fresh and vibrant shift.

    You don’t run into a lot of Donne enthusiasts these days–I wonder if you have read “The Flea”–I feel like you might enjoy the bizarreness and passion of the extended metaphor. –Nothing makes me swoon like the academic inaccessible passion of the high modernists–your brief allusion to Eliot in “Afternoons and Coffeespoons” always pleased me, especially knowing now that it wasn’t an uninformed reference.

    I like your notes on what your currently reading.

    It’s great to hear your voice rattling my little computer speakers again!

    If Mr Donne was alive he might quote “the whole single Malt Family” back to you. Poets are oft quoted out of time. Don’t overlook your own work Sir.
