textbook is dedicated in memory of
Barbara Zivi Douglas
a dear friend of my youth
whose involvement in creative arts and dance were an inspiration.
Living near one another on the Magothy River
we spent many enjoyable times playing
with our Chesapeake Bay retriever dogs
- Barbara's Sailor and my Ben -
and swimming, doing crafts and exploring the woods.
