    Delighted to see Rose Cook’s simple and profound poem listed amongst all those international names! And I’m enjoying the book (though NA needs a new proofreader I think). I’ve recommended it widely.

    Warm wishes to you and your creativity for the year’s turning.

      Thanks Roselle! I blame myself for the typos. I went over it a thousand times and they are still there, even after I took them out, some of them. Oh well. I’m so grateful to you for your support. As ever with best wishes, and for 2016, Anthony
