In June (2006), when seven of us met at the Barnes & Noble in Saginaw (Michigan) to read poems by
Norton just forwarded the delightful birthday card you and the other RJ poets signed. My warm thanks to all of you. It was a happy surprise to be so closely read in Saginaw.

A few days before our meeting, I read a few essays by Ms. Kumin. Pat, our Newsletter editor, had recommended them to me. I was able to share with our group that night at Barnes & Noble some of that information.
We are encouraged, and you should be too!
What is poetry? Fresh bread! We want some more! We want some more!
