“I found a dead mole the other day.  Have you ever had occasion to study one?  I give you a mole’s whisker as one of the ineffable sensations life has to offer.  The sun on a mole’s whisker is fine as the thought in a saint’s mind... And its claws and cleft nose!  I spent two days drawing him and never had happier hours.”                                                              - Polly Thayer (Starr) to Helen Howe, 1952
