    Peter I could listen to you speak all day long. I love your new blog! I especially enjoyed the post with the poem Bugs in a Bowl, which I’d never read before. Thanks for posting it, and for your entire site! Today I’ll take a look around my bowl, and maybe I will chat with a few bugs, as well.

    I look forward to carrying Peter’s podcasts on my mp3 player, so I can listen to them whenever I need a lift in my spirits or to just relax in the midst of chaos. To just live life as it is.
