Wim Wenders - A Fan Letter

Dear Mr. Wenders

On my Christmas list was a request for a book titled, "Satellite Images
from Outer Space." My wife ordered it from Borders. When it did not
arrive by Christmas my wife told me it was being sent from England which
made no sense to me since we live in Franklin, TN.

In January the book arrived. It was written in German and was by Wim
Wenders titled, "Bilder Von Der Oberflache Der Erde." I can not read the
book but loved the pictures and googled Wim Wenders who I had never
heard of.

In reading about you I ordered Paris, Texas, on Netflix and for the last
2 nights have watched it twice, once without your commentary and once
with it. It has been a thoroughly enticing journey.

Of particular interest to me were two things. One was the scenery around
Four Corners. I once wrote a book titled, "Four Corners - A Literary
Excursion Across America." It is on the web at:

Also as I was enjoying your photography book, I found one of your
pictures from Las Vegas, New Mexico titled, "Entire Family." I also have
written a story about Las Vegas, New Mexico, titled "The Outlaw and the
Politican." You might be interested in reading it since you have been
there. The site is:

I spent several summers near Sante Fe, N.M. The scenery is beautiful,
the stories of that region fascinating.

Well, thanks to a Borders employees mistake I will now know who Wim
Wenders is. Thanks for your work.

All the best,
