Spider Woman and Ursula Leguin.............

"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!
