  1. This is great Mary and Paul. I love the house logo, works well with the company name, spirit of what you do, etc. I wish you the best on everything. All you touch turns to gold!

  3. It's good to know I can come here anytime for a refreshing dose of Ma and Pa.
    Very impressive site, mazel tov!
    And I'm very honored to be listed as a collaborator!
    Although I'm having trouble remembering what I did exactly, if anything.
    I also love the photos, especially the water ones and particularly the person with the tie waist-deep in the Sea of Reeds.
    The trailers are all really well-done. I even learned a few things about Suzuki teaching. Or maybe re-learned something I forgot...Which reminds me, did I ever send you my Guide to practicing?
    My once-formidable memory is in tatters these days.
    You two (three, counting Nuala) are a force of nature.

  4. I forgot (my fugal memory again) to add that Wallace Stevens is my favorite modern poet
