    What a fun, creative piece this is. I simple LOVE “in the middle of the muddle of the puddle.” Such amazing sound bump in that.

    I liked your use of stormy text to show that this has to subside to make sense out of it. I wonder if all text is a kind of storm that we calm by making sense out of it.

  9. I love your play with words, even though I have to work at it. A different kind of graphic poetry for me that is interesting and rewarding. Makes me rethink language.

I make art, I read a lot and I'm now trying to write as well. Otherwise I belong to a cat by the name of Charlie that drives me nuts sometimes and other times makes me melt with love for her.
