    Hi Elizabeth, Thanks for sending round this note and pointing me back toward one of my favorite Stafford poems. I’ve been reflecting on Stafford’s “legacy” (he might blanch at the word) on the occasion of his 100th birthday celebration, Bainbridge Library version, happening in a couple of weeks. The Stafford I most often return to is the person who sat regularly in morning dark with coffee and favorite pen, then got out of his own way. A sort of morning zazen, pen loosely held in hand mudra. That’s the place to follow into word. Happy New Year! David
