Thanks Evan for putting that together, and thank you Alan for sharing your incredible Noetry here. Reply Damian Robin January 22, 2022 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. Reply Paul Freeman January 11, 2022 ‘There’s none we find more wondrous than we.’ I like it. Well done, Alan. Reply C.B. Anderson January 11, 2022 Nordstrom is a poet after my own heart.
