    Oh, Jeanne,
    This one is absolutely beautiful. I wish I was there to hold your art in my own two hands. I LOVE this one. What a beautiful job you did on it. Would you call this a concrete poem? I would. Excellent work. I’m in awe.

      I designed this for a show I had in SOHO, NYC. It is called a callogram (Calligraphy in the shape of something). At that time I didn’t see myself as a poet, but in 2015, I would call the text written: poetic prose. When you get to be old enough, the definitions recycle and the labels quicken again with renewed sparkle, NO?

    Hope you got to enjoy Ewan Clayton’s video made in Japan while he was at the International Calligraphy Convention.
    My design is actually larger than life size and took up the wall of the gallery as a mural!
