":gratitude for allowing me to share an intimate evening with your beautiful abilities, that turned an already wonderful poetic work, into something even more special. You actually were able to transcend me into your world of childlike innocence and wonder, and then deep inside. I will take something special with me from that evening, wherever I go." ---Harold Sleiman
