i'm a friend of julie lamendola's, and happened to see your profile photo when her new fb friends appeared on my wall. i thought, 'oh, someone doing a silly pose with a banana' and clicked on it out of boredom.
but what i'm writing to say is that it's one of the most striking portraits of a woman i've ever seen, it caught my poet's eye. (we poets tend to find inspiration in unexpected places.) i'm not trying to hit on you, but just wanted to express my admiration!
