I’m a writer from the Philadelphia area and eagerly look forward to your mailings. You consistently mine the unconventional, the fascinating, the thought-provoking art, And “A day in the life of Hemingway”! It gives me hope that such authentic originality will continue to emerge from the minds of artists everywhere. And when I read it all, I'm lost in the moment (like the best art). Keep it coming.

I think saying that a man can be defeated but not destroyed is exactly what I needed for today.

There is such truth to that.

Destruction only comes from giving up. As long as we are trying, striving to improve, then defeat is but a small stumble in our quest. We will never be destroyed.

Thanks, Mike.
