I love to write for the quiet listening, seeing in my mind's eye  ... stepping into Jay's circle of writers I leave my busy-world shoes at the door and tiptoe in ... let the magic begin.  There is nothing quite like Jay's invitation to imagine.  Imagine!  Bon Courage!  Jay seems to say, Bon Aventure!  and our surprised pencils fly.
