from Tucson, AZ

-I loved the way your book Maria and the Stars of Nazca
  invites the readers to feel such gratitude and awe
  in the face of the Transcendent and the mysterious.
  It is lovely! The texturing of the illustrations
  makes it come alive as well.

-Thank you for your mysteries carved, hidden in sand--
  crawling, flying creatures, alive,
  conquering our present.

-Thank you for writing such an inspiring book
  that teaches us to see more than lines.

-Muchas gracias por el libro que para todos nosotros
  se significa mucho. Por lo pronto yo aprendí que
  las lineas significan mucho más de lo que nosotros
  pensamos. Para mí las lineas son como si nos
  conectaran a nosotros mismos.
