I received a very brief message from my friend Kevin, who is a Composition major at Miami U.  The letter contained remarks from the Composition Chair of the university…–Jim

Jim,

Remember that cycle of poems you sent me?  The ones which I used for my recital.  I’m just letting you know that the poems won me a scholarship from the music department.  As it turns out, the music department was quite impressed that both the music for the concert and the lyrics were supplied by students, and wanted to offer their sincere admiration for the artwork. 

Thanks for the money!!  When you come back to Cincinnati, I’ll buy you a beer or two…

Best,

Kevin

    • It is from an old version of my manuscript. The poems go into the Antaeus myth. I personally hate them. I took them out. Nonetheless, it was nice to hear such good news from a close friend…

      • Could you say more about the Antaeus myth and why it is important to you?
