original artwork copyright ai li 2002
I have now had a good look at
dew-on-line and find it
quite beautiful. Your artwork is wonderful. Do you have exhibitions?
Some of it reminds me of Miro's "Blue 11".
Your new combination of releasing
Still as an anthologised magazine
for the book club, and putting the poems online sounds interesting.
. . . ps i found your sept. 11 page very moving, as so many people
obviously have a need to process their thoughts,
and so beautifully.
Regarding publication of my haiku
in magazines, i would like to say this:
It all started with 'Still'. I will be ever grateful to you.
I have found edition 1 very absorbing. There are
some wonderful pieces
and I do like the blending of art work and text - something I have always
been wary of because I have seen some attempts to do this register as artificial.
On first look I was tempted to simply scroll down and skim read
(I know - a disgraceful impulse however fleeting) but did not and
instead spent three periods of moving down page by page pacing it
and not wanting it to end. It also meant seeing my own piece in its
collated context instead of in isolation.
I am ecstatic you enjoyed my tear
haiku and will post her,
in dew-on-line edition 2002 . . . especially flattered because I
love your haiku . . . I am fascinated by the new imaginative forms
of poetry you are creating and I am trying my hand at one now,
in a journal, for a month.
The edition one of dol is
delightful. As one has come to expect,
the selection of work is diverse and thought-provoking and delightful.
new era for 'still'!!!
thank you for all your hard work as the still editor for the past 5?
The site looks wonderful and easy
to navigate through. Congratulations!
. . . I spent a very long time yesterday on dol and enjoyed it
The material was very fresh and original. I also found the layout spacious
which let material breath and left the mind uncluttered in a Zen fashion.

Keep up the superb work.
I am very excited to be
contributing to dol, as sending you a submission
was something of a celebration for me . . . For all the joy you bring
to many people, through publicising their work, I hope that some of
that energy comes back to you.
II had a quick peek yesterday . . . It's a bold step
I look forward to seeing its petals unfold, watching it unfold.
the first dew
on the first frond,
How exciting to discover your web
dol is a truly exciting, perceptive, poignant,
touching...creation. THANK YOU.
And congratulations to you for
dew-on-line; I enjoyed the first
e-issue, and look forward to reading more. And I particularly like
the fact that you've included artwork-- a genuine attraction which
nicely highlights the poetry.
Your largesse frightens me.
Reading thru dol 2, with more special poems and
Artwork, I've been thinking how gorgeous, I'm part of this, thank you,
. . .I'm looking forward to the Anthology/ies.
I've been fascinated by STILL for a considerable time now and
welcome your new e-zine very warmly.
... . . dew-on-line, which btw, is
spectacular, though I
expected no less from you.
It is with great pleasure that I
learned you're going to post two of
my pieces in your sensitive-thoughtful journal.

. . . I have certainly been interested to
see/read what you have
accepted from other writers, as enlightening and affirming.
Leslie Giddens feature is really excellent...Just
the right amount.
And so quiet. Especially those on pages 6,7 8 & 9. A good
feature start for the philosophy of "dew-on-line"...
. . your wonderful enterprise.
