Oh, beautiful! Poem and picture transport me to many shared meals, shared sadnesses and happinesses, in a fiercely beautiful land that I love! Thank you for this.

I appreciate this very much. If only we could actually "sew-up" this torn fabric of life we seem to too easily tear, cut and rip. Delighted. Thanks.

Not something I would ever consider writing, and so to me an unexpected gem rises from these stitched lines.

'Chain Stitch' is absolutely filled with heartfelt emotions. The way you express them is so sincere. This is an exceptional piece of work. I can't see the picture, but I'm sure that it enhances your thoughts.
