Where do I begin? OK-Cowboy mail art-beautiful watercolor out West-with Woody, no less (big hit with the the kids-a shock of recognition-on a stamp!) Writing that looks like a comic book writer's-awesome! His own cancellation-where to begin on that. . . wow and wow! Even his own Canada Goose uh-chop, would you call it? On top of that, he wrote an incredibly useful turn of phrase for the classroom: (if I may, Bill?) "And remember, always do your best, because art is a reflection of you. Like you, it should be beautiful." I don't think that occurrs to many kids-especially those raised in homes that don't experience art much at all-they see it as something outside themselves-something they are being asked to produce. I just think it really, really brings it home.

I just today got another package from Bill, but haven't been able to photograph it yet, so I'll save it for another time. But I am giddy over it-giddy! So much to share with the kids! Tremendous thanks for your generosity and heart, Bill. Thank you.
