    Two days ago I just ran into your Carnet de Voyage and it was really inspiring, it helped me a lot to think about my own creative process as a storyteller, it helped me a lot, many thanks! Please go on with your work, but take care of your hand as well. Greetings from Barcelona!

    Take care of you Craig.
    I’m very happy that I could read Blankets.
    It made me sad a little.

    I leave you something that was written by J.H. Newman:
    Lead, kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom,
    Lead Thou me on!
    The night is dark, and I am far from home—
    Lead Thou me on!
    Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
    The distant scene—one step enough for me.

    I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou
    Shouldst lead me on.
    I loved to choose and see my path; but now,
    Lead Thou me on!
    I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears,
    Pride ruled my will: remember not past years.

    So long Thy power hath blessed me, sure it still
    Will lead me on,
    O’er moor and fen, o’er crag and torrent, till
    The night is gone;
    And with the morn those angel faces smile
    Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile.
