Thank you, Betta! I learned that art is the work of art plus the interpretation of it. Where the artist stops the further growth of the work begins. Evocation is an essential quality of successful (and good) art. It takes me by surprise how ‘Wrinkles’ (poem plus illustration) has worked in the Chalkboard community. What a joy to be witness of so much wisdom and creativity.

And now I will read your poem.

Friend of life and beauty and foe of spoilers of life and beauty. Golden marriage. Grandfather. Pianist and micro poet. Dutch, European.
