bear,

At some point the decision to stay inside the lines, illustrated by the child's coloring book, removes too much freedom, and creating becomes difficult.

I am benefiting from your help in punctuation, finding myself gaining a sense of disciplined understanding concerning symbol arrangements in specific order, so as to help transfer meaning intact, by avoiding too much ambiguity in language.

Up to a point, this works, and then I get too caught up in the mechanics, as if the need to convey a message steps down off the list of things to do.

When it is my turn again to edit the final book, I don't want to change anything without having your OK to do so, at that point, and in that effort, if you are willing, I can learn how to keep inside the lines better, improve the power to communicate accurately, and avoid conflicts in understanding why things are done the way they are done, when the idea is to communicate accurately.

I guess I am saying that I appreciate your help, greatly, once again.
