QuotationIt was good to hear from you. I have often thought of writing to you, and usually that is the first thing that comes into my mind when I am reading something of yours, like the earlier part of Big Sur [and the Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch] for example, or parts of the Colossus of Maroussi (which I think is a tremendous and important book)
