    Hey, Jill--

    Thanks for your kind comment on "Passing from the Light"...

    Sally Houtman – Jan 14, 2012

    Jill, I so appreciate your support of my work. I haven't been doing this long, so every little boost helps.

    There are a few of us kiwi writers here on FN - Michelle Elvy said she'd been toying with starting a FN group for us, but we fear there are only a few. Do you know of any others and if it might be worthwile?

    Sally Houtman – Jan 08, 2012

    Jill, thanks so much for reading "Windows." Your single word reaction means so much! The essay was short listed for the Takahe cultural studies comp in 2010, but I'd sat on it since, thinking it wasn't publication material. I'm now rethinking. Again, thanks for reading.
