Congratulations on the write-up in today's Globe. The project is inspiring, and the artwork is spectacular.

Thank you very much, Jean. That write-up really took me by surprise, but it was wonderful to read. Your compliments are very appreciated, and I hope you will continue to visit while I work my way through the remaining 431 pages of Melville's great novel.

Terrifying in the best way.
