    also, thanks for what you said on my last poem. I don't paint. Wish I could. I went thru a phase where I took beautiful paintings I saw on line and I wrote etheree to describe them. My friend painted them for me (a little differently so that I could publish them as illustrations with my poems) and I made a book called For the Love of Etheree!

    WOW, Heather, this has got to be one of the best ways I have ever seen someone do an acrostic because you gave a REAL meaning to "backward" through this. Gotta fave it!!
