The reception for SD Book ARts National Juried Exhibition today was well attended and great fun. I especially enjoyed talking with a young UCSD student who made a point of telling me that she really enjoyed my book, "Prescription for Poetry." Her enthusiasm for seeing all of the selected books was contagious. Speaking with the juror was a treat as I was able to discuss my vision and
process of creating this artist book. I have always believed that writing is universal in its ability to heal the spirit. I placed my original poems in prescription bottles with the prescription that said, "read or write a poem each day or as needed for health and healing." I was touched by the kind comments I received.

Al and I are on our way to Maui to visit our son Ben, who will be graduating from Maui Culinary Academy this Sunday. We can hardly wait. Thank you to all who have sent him good wishes. Friends Vern and Bette from Flagstaff will join us, as will our 15 year old niece Larisa. Plan to eat, snorkel and swim, visit, and hike the Bamboo Forrest, Iao Valley and celebrate with Ben.
Mahalo and Aloha
