Even before Chuck kindly brought this thread back into the forefront, I'd had Matt on my mind a lot. He was a lot of inspiration to me, and I cherish what he gave us here.

The last email I got from Matt, a few days before he died, simply said "I caught this morning morning's minion". I recognized it as the opening verse from Gerard Manley Hopkins "Windhover". As I've thought of him over the ensuing months, I decided to make a printable version of the poem and use one of his images, and one of mine, as a personal keepsake. The bird is mine, but the seaside image and the feather image are Matt's.
The words, the seaside, your bird—the story on top of the story. They allowed me to see and feel and share the experience of love made real.

Karen, thank you for this. Matt was a dear friend and I'm sorry you did not have a chance to interact with him first hand.
