I have spent moments over the past
few days looking
through DOL 2. It is, of course, a pleasure and an
honour to be included. I was particularly taken by
Cralan Deutsch's work
Legends has provided an interesting challenge . . .
. . . and good luck with the next terrific
. . . keep up the great work you do for
dew-on-line 1 & 2 look great . . .
I wanted to thank you again - + tell you how happy I
am to be
part of what you're doing. I love spending quiet moments w/ your site.
I am enjoying re-reading the
completed dol 2.
I'm very excited both about dol, and the new
And of your art work, I was
particularly taken with the "dew-on-line" one,
the blue and white one with the two blue-green dots. It drew me
in with a slight intake of breath (I'm not kidding)
yet felt so peaceful. I'll no doubt return to it.
The translation of Santoka p.7 is
very fine . . . You're off the a good start . . .
and when the journal is still quite short like that, there is a sense of
anticipation which is bound to keep bringing readers back. I think
the organic aspect of dol is going to work quite well.
a short while ago: I wanted to write to you at once
. . . to say how
lovely to see the poems and artwork so vibrant there. I've read,
once through, the bios, comments and reviews, too.
. . . The sexy one and raining again is all sorts of things, among
grin-making, real, refreshing...and real applies to you as Editor, too...
I loved the Tanka in the
Reviews:that's a form I find appealing . . .
As you can see, I'm continuing to feel inspired, and now
I'll have another look/read/muse..
I've seen your new site - and it's
It's a good idea to change the way that STILL is seen, also.
II am hugely impressed by dew on line (which
I heard from
Stanford Forrester) the artwork is as luscious as the poems.
Keep it up.
I feel inspired...again!...visiting dol 3...
The site is looking good and i like the name . . .
I am honoured to be part of your projects!
. . . I think the issue is wonderful.
I have spent some time looking at
dol and also reading your
own poems and the quality is truly superb.
Enjoyed the "seascape" poem in the journal
proper and always
Santoka . . .I was happy to see you using longer poems
in the feature of Marjorie Buettner's.
Some of the poems were very good. I think my
time was the more traditional "cat and cricket" poem of Tim
with its charming illustration. I also liked Sheila Windsor's
It is growing isn't it!
thanks so much for the site, the work, and the wonderful
feeling of collaboration
I have enjoyed still very much.
I am delighted with your perceptive review of my
book, 'A Pattern
for This Place'! It is especially gratifying to know that my tanka about
a woman from a different time and place communicated to you, who
live an ocean away and one or two cultures away. Thank you!
. . . and the entrancing Poet Feature . . .
beautiful, truly poetic, and
what a cv...shall visit prayer lighthouse later, and re-visit dol 3.
I just peeked in on your site
tonight and what you did was absolutely wonderful.
You have such a vibrant yet subtle artistic hand. Wonderful images that
seem to go hand in hand with the poetry. How can I ever thank you for the
gift you have given me? I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I've been to your revamped website
and love it!
The latest DOL with Marjorie is
. . . it is a pleasure to
watch DOL move through different spaces as it grows.
dew-on-line looks good, already the quality
and the entity are 'beginning'
to 'hone itself' into something distinct, much as still originally
good to see more haiga and artwork. Are you going to include more of
your own artwork and photography? One of the best features of still was
always your amazing covers. I hope there will more of your photography
in future editions.
I have just read through your
feature of Marjorie Buettner in
dew-on-line 3 - wonderful. I look forward to reading more.

After having looked through dol 3
I am beginning to understand a
little more of the meaning you give to the word?journey?. The scope of
subjects, imagery and style is extensive, and yet you give a sense of
underlying cohesion to each journal as a gathering of poems. I think
it is this which generates the feeling of ? collaboration?
Erin Cowgill speaks of so rightly.
I would like to let you know how
much I enjoyed your and
Marjorie Buettner's joint feature! It is simply
I love Marjorie's writing and your sensitive, quiet artwork
beautifully complemented her writing. Well done !
My best wishes and admiration.
