Subject: Maori Tattooing
I have met a Maori man, in California, and his greeting to me was fascinating. He put his forehead and nose to mine and stated that this was his custom greeting.
I was curious as to the meaning behind this particular custom. If you could answer or point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it very much.--- Thank you,

There is a reader of ours named Irene Hsi who has scolded us on our writings about the Maori. I suspect she knows a great deal about the culture, and you might want to make contact with her at

Subject: Just found you!
I heard a radio interview here in suburban Philadelphia with Reynolds Price & googled his name. Hadn't known he was a paraplegic. Found your website & am immensely enjoying it. Just read your praises for Helen Keller, who was a member of the Swedenborgian religion, whose world headquarters is 5 minutes away from where I live.
I wonder what you'd think of some of my poetry & if perhaps I might publish it online? Let me enclosed a few recent poems. Let me know what you think. Gosh, I hope I'm not another Reynolds Price. Okay, I'll find a couple & attach them.
Thanks very much for reading & again, congratulations on a fantastic online journal.
