it seems my previous attempt at a message was lost, so i will try again--

dear steppelandstock,

i would love to use your image "view on the frozen river2" on the cover of a self-published book of translations of Chinese poetry, "Running Under the Ice," soon to be available through Amazon.

your terms of use suggest this is ok--but, may i send you a hardcopy instead of a link once the book is ready???

谢谢 thank you!
