Y'all might be interested in my latest love letter to "Dear Son" which has a special focus on a poetry and art book, EURYDICE'S SONG.  Poems by William Borden and monotypes by Douglas Kinsey.  What's interesting about this project, as Borden notes, is that most variations of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth have been from Orpheus' point of view.  He remedies that ... and does so powerfully as befits a feminist message.  Besides, it's amusing to begin that love letter with

Dear Son,  
Yesterday, I frittered away more of your inheritance by adding three more books to our library...

Amusement and more HERE.

P.S.  Actually, it's possible that my comment on the book's Amazon page may be my first Amazon review!  Or, certainly the only one I can ever remember doing -- that's how much I love this book!
