I was surprised she remembered me, let alone my passing remarks about poetry and life. Aside from a few standard phrase greetings I have not spoken with her for many months and we could not say in the most tenuous sense that we actually know one another. And yet a letter, with poems, showing me she has seen something of me that others have never noticed. I replied of course, just to be polite you understand, with a casual light hearted thanks. We are both creative I think, although hers is transparent and mine is opaque, or so I thought.
