      Thank you for this link, Sandi.

      And thank you, Alan Nordstrom, for such an insightful, elegant, profound and yet simple poem and for the other revelatory poems in a similar vein and the commentary on them on your NOETRY page.

      And thanks Evan and company for the fine video.

    I like it. Well done, Alan.
