 From one who has spent time with you there in the field, Martyn, I
want to add my two cents to the bravos! This is a lovely piece.
Poetic. Lyrical (both sounds and narrative). And very touching. It's
difficult to express the intimacy we often feel when connected to
that special world. But you've captured it in tone of voice, choice
of words, and the textures used to support the illusion. Kudos to you
and Jeff.

Your avid student,
