I love your e-mails! Thanks.
Your best letter yet. BRAVO!!
I loved your article on Autumn and the
falling leaves because it was almost as if you were taking the thoughts
from my mind. I have always loved the
fall, but unfortunately, here in Texas, we don't have much of a fall.
Well, actually, we have fall, we just don't have a winter.
However, our front yard is filled with falling leaves, all gold and red
and yellow as we
prepare for our annual family tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving.
What a pleasant surprise your letter brings to me. I am just more than
happy to read such a beautiful poem. It is nice to have a such a talent,
and I am sure that your friends will enjoy what you produce. Without
your permission, I put your nice letter on a BBS, as I believe people
will surely have an interest in visiting your web site after reading it.
Today, one reader wrote back to me that your letter reminds him of the
fall in New England. Here is his response:
I trust that you've seen New England in the fall. If you haven't, you
Deliciously beautiful! That's all I can say. From the White Mountains in
New Hampshire to the coastal lines of Rhode Island, the sensational
turning colors of leaves, their stunning beauty, breath-taking
robustness, and the sheer variety and wonderful layering and coupling,
would no doubt exhaust both the palette and imagination of even the
finest master painters!
Two weeks ago, on a concert-going trip to New York, I visited a friend
in New Jersey. We drove to the classic and elegant campus of Princeton
University. I was deeply moved by the intellectual milieu as well as the
natural scenes, all the cathedrals, buildings, and stone paved passages
nested in shades of pine trees, ivy, and, what else, those autumn

wind, and passionately embracing the lawn, the mother earth. Simply
pleasurable to the eyes and refreshing for the mind.
Alas, transient is the beauty that is fragile. That's perhaps why we
hold such a soft spot in our heart for this what is promised to be the
In a week, all that is gone. And now the chilly breeze reminds me that
winter is just around the corner. Then again, I love to hear Peng Li
Yuan sing "I love you, the snow in the northern border."
The above letter was written by a person who is now teaching in a business
school in America. He also came from my hometown in Zhengzhou, Henan
Province, China. How nice to communicate with each other in this way! I
admire you for your taste in art and love for life.
Reaction to our article on the making of
The Red Shoes:
The Red Shoes
is my all time absolutely favorite film. I watch it whenever I can. I
have a tape of it. It is a glorious film, with the finest costumes,
dancing, cinematography, directing, color, music, and.....I can't find
the words, but Thank You for the wonderful article and pics, and the
insight into the people who helped create this dazzling film.
You're the greatest!! Thanks again.
Reaction to our Buying Beauty test of
Clairol's Herbal Essences:
When I first came to America, at the
first apartment we lived in, I remember using the old Clairol Herbal Essence
shampoo. I wanted to be the little hippy
fairy girl on the bottle!
I think I may try it again, because I still want to be a little hippy
(We at Fashion Finds are still using
the original Herbal Essence, which Clairol distributes in the original
bottle label and design. We think it's a far better product than
the new Herbal Essences line.)
