I was interested and pleased to see Noyma Appelbaum's good words for Walter
Lowenfels.  Although I never did meet him, I read much of his work and
certainly knew of him.  I published in Mainstream when its literary quality
was high under the editorship of Charles Humboldt -- and read the journal
extensively -- and Lowenfels'  fine contributions were often featured
therein.  He was also, I should add, a very close friend of one of the
oldest and dearest friends of my wife, Eldri, and me -- the late radical
[and essentially Southern] poet, John Beecher [In Egypt Land, To Live and
Die in Dixie, Hear the Wind Blow! and many other works.]  John and his wife,
Barbara, knew Walter Lowenfels very well over a long period and held him and
his courage and his work in highest regard.

In our Gray Hole, the ghosts often dance in the junipers and sage, on the
game trails, in the tributary canyons with the thick red maples, and on the
high windy ridges -- and they dance from within the very essence of our own
inner being. They do this especially when the bright night moon shines down
on the clean white snow that covers the valley and its surroundings.  Then
it is as bright as day -- but in an always soft and mysterious and
remembering way. [Hunterbear]
