Navé a superb poet and a unique individual full of soul and wisdom: that rare kind you don’t come across very often and when you do, you want to hang around and listen. He gave me the keys to unlock the doors I didn’t dare open. I have a lot to thank him for and anyone who gets an opportunity to work with him should seize it.
