    hello dear friends,

    Happy holidays, friends! For some reason, my notifications for the Commons were turned off — I am now back in the loop, thankfully. What a gift, to read about Matisse’s use of colors, upside-down-ness, swirls and loops, his line, the striking sameness of his destination, and the anguish therein — and the translations Mallarmé sonnet — I’m celebrating this!

    “A glorious example of how the visual and verbal can respond to one another.” Yes! I love how we encounter this quote: “My destination is always the same, but I work out a different route to get there.” Beautiful—and relatable, especially this year.

    I will be thinking about the startling orange flame, and continuing to miss our conversations, which helped me through this year. I look forward to future meetings.

    Thanks so much for sending, Mary Ann, and I’m hoping everyone is doing as well as possible. Sending a warm hello back.

    I surely do want to see it, based on the amazing responses from all the
    poets and readers.

    All the best to all of you!
    Hugs from afar.
