rZ2O4V You could certainly see your skills in the work you write. The world
hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to
mention how they believe. At all times go after your heart.

I am a physics teacher who was acquainted personally with Richard Wilbur.
Many phrases from his poems stick in my mind and illuminate daily and
milestone experiences. One of these is "the buried strangeness/that
nourishes the known." For me it epitomizes physics, whose simple laws lie
behind everything we see and experience in the physical world.

Edwin F. Taylor from United States
