    O.k. What can I say. Woke up a blank page. Got coffee. Then your email. I am full of ideas, creative thought, and nostalgia.

    I met Tomie dePaola in 1980? He came to Nashville to promote his book at Mills book store. I helped get our Governor’s wife, Honey Alexander, to promote it through her interest in the illustrations for her kids. Such a small world.

    Love your spring pastels…the forsythias and crab apple blooms of pink and yellow remind me of my Grandmother’s home in Dayton, Tennessee. A beautiful spot in the valley. Spring always came early there.

    Thank you for all this. John Gregory
