Criticism through the eyes of a writer
After hearing from Darkuma, I wrote back to her after she posted her review comment. I asked her if she was just doing it merely to be supportive, or whether she actually meant what she had written. She laughed, and said she knew I would be skeptical, and that truly she enjoyed the book--and that it had sparked some deep thoughts, and had piqued her sense of relationships to, and in, the universe. I'm grateful that at least two of my readers "got" what I was striving for.
