crediting sources and references, I have made an effort to
contact all the publishers mentioned here. The few who responded
are gratefully acknowledged. Much of the graphic work included
comes from my friends and I thank them from the heart.
Creating this electronic selection of my work has been very much a cooperative
effort. Monty Levenson and Eva Strauss Rosen endeavored to provide me with
the materials and the encouragement to proceed. Shelley
Dorbin assisted greatly to organize the files for website use, and he taught
me to manage the materials. Sarah Hamman prepared the files for Internet use
and got them on line. Jerri-Jo Idarius collaborated with me to construct the
present website. I consider all a guild that made it possible. Art deals with
using the materials at hand to make something. In this sense,
Jerri-Jo of Creation-Designs.com played an equal role in making the visible
form shown here. I am humbly grateful that these friends considered the project
passage cannot be completed without acknowledging those who
believed in me. These are my wife Judith whose presence
pervades these pages; friends Daniel Marlin, Anton Lignell,
David Kiebert, Sanford Dorbin and Michael A'Dair; and the
elders — Rose Cecelia Ray, Frederick and Mary Rose
Locke, and Rabbi Norman F. Feldheym — who sacrificed
for my sake. May they approve this gesture.
