    Hey, folks,

    So, my tribute to James Krenov was published today, on a site called New Verse News. Click the link to get there.

    Doorlink sent it to the daughter of the tribute's subject. She sent back this nice note:


    Thank you so much for your kind words and for sharing your husband's poem with us. As I read the words, I can picture my father's hands, the movement, and I can smell the woods that surrounded him always. I am deeply touched that your husband was inspired to write this graceful poem in my father's honor--I think he captured him beautifully! Please thank him for me, on behalf of the family.

    Very cool!

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Splendid Bill, you are a man of very many talents!

    Thanks, everybody.

    People seem to like the poem, but the best news is I haven't had any woodworkers write to tell me I got some technical fact wrong!

    By the way, I've changed the link so that it now points directly to the poem.

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Very cool Bill. The poem is nice, but the fact that you touched his daughter's heart makes it special.
