Love the chess set. Hope Martin give it as a gift to Vincent.

Carole, Carole...from whence do you draw this beauty...the phrasing...the delicately chosen words that say - with such dignity - the things other authors say in the most mundane fashion? Awed. I am awed, again and again. Thank you. And look for a line by line commentary in your Inbox soon.
Love you! Love you art! Nancy

Sonia, I wonder if Martin plays chess? Maybe Father could beat him??? We know Vincent could.

Old Father Seamus ... who was he and who did he know?

Nancy, you dear. Thank you and thank you again! What a good feeling your words bring. What would I do without you? Love you back.

So thoughtful of you as always, Carole, to label these! Thank you, really. I'd love to check that box myself!
