|"Ursula Leguin as Spider Woman, Weaving the Worlds Into Being" (2015)|
Back in December I sent a photo of the painting above to my favorite author, Ursula Leguin, along with a letter expressing my appreciation for all the worlds she created in her books that I have spent so many years visiting and learning from. I have travelled with Ged throughout Earthsea, and studied worlds of the Ecumen with Mobiles and Stabiles. I was pleased to at last be able to thank her.
And more surprised and pleased when she wrote back! She sent me a card, and a poem. What a delight and privilege, one I will treasure always!
