you're not going to learn anything from me.  i could learn tons from you though.  i sort of muddle my way through every piece i make. i have no formal training at all.  i've seen your work!  you should apply.  i think you don't realize how good you are and shouldn't sell yourself short.  just remember one thing, bifei.  the worst that can happen is they say no and you are no worse off than where you started.  nothing ventured, nothing gained.  these are wise words.  i'm going to tell jennifer to talk you into applying.  now watch out for the big gun.  you will be at SNAG this year?

hey bifei,

i think you are a member of snag, but this just came thru riveting news.  maybe you do/don't know about it?

Rabbits, Glass Sheep, Ada Lovelace and Virginia Woolf in Hindi

(Anyone else requiring this service should contact "Crystalfit":…See More
