I have the first issue of Marc’s Stripewriter and I am so happy he’s gotten up to 16. Of course as I am reading this I wish I could hold it in my hands the way Marc intended, but it’s still a pleasure to read online. You feel all of his passion for the beauty of life, love, people, animals, flowers, etc. that you get from his music, without any of the sadness, cynicism, torment, and struggles. Don’t get me wrong, I love all of that about his music, but these writings seem more like the Marc I’ve come to know over the years. This is the side of Marc who is not afraid of criticism for being called a pollyanna, unsophisticated. These musings and anecdotes of his are exactly the kinds of things that life was meant to be all about. In fact, no matter how complicated lives can get, it’s still made up of a lot of simple things, some just better than others. Oh, listen to me…it must be contagious. I hope it is! It’s We need more poets and dreamers like Marc in our world these days, and I’d be happy to call myself a disciple of the Gospel of Marc.

I loved reading about Mrs. B’s secret – a scandal!

I cut out your free button for thinking outside of the box. What a brilliant image.

A deeply moving, fun, Technicolor journey.
I’ve read this issue over and over.
As always, I want more!

Another great addition of the Stripe Writer! Your writing is like a hand that goes right underneath my skin and squeezes my heart and makes my eyes water. How is it you do that? I’ll just tuck another piece of Aunt Di into my heart and remember how funny you looked with the milkshake moustache and the mischievous look in your eyes as you stole a sip at the Good Stuff Diner. As we chatted up the stranger sitting next to us, I thought to myself “only Marc can still look good with a milkshake moustache.” You are magic my friend. ~ J. Michael Reeds
