  1. Don, thank you very much for this project, and for your continuing, highly appreciated supportiveness of local/area poets. SPECTRUM ANTHOLOGY is increasingly impacting our local poetry community in positive, uplifting ways. Thank you for all the hard work you put into its editing and publishing, and may your successes continue and multiply exponentially! Thanks, also, for this honor. I'm happy for all my colleagues.
