Dear Ann,

You are obviously a very sincere, indeed, passionate woman about your faith.
Personally, I have no problem with that or with expressions of that, and you
have linked it up succinctly with its place on this list, in terms of how it
relates to your own art and your teaching.

I am taken aback, however, by a message which seems to come through in a
number of your posts, and that is that somehow these are horrible, immoral
times. You reference Michaelangelo. Certainly someone who has advanced the
arts to startling heights. Yet he did not live, shall we say, a "pure" life!
It is my position that we are no more or no less "moral" as a species than we
have ever been. These are not awful times. The challenge is, and always has
been, to make it through the world with your own spirit in tact.
