    Dear Carmel Mawle et al,

    Thank you so much for the new “Empathy” issue. I am surprised and humbled to see my photo as the cover of this year’s issue. Thank you so much.

    I am so pleased to be a part of your noble effort. The book arrived yesterday, but already I am enjoying the excellent editorial choices.

    Thanks again.
