    Dear Wendy,
    I love the new work. Thinking about you on your birthday. Don’t know if Pic spoke of our parting of the ways–but basically he accused me of cyber stalking him for a day, and then it was kaput. He recruited an article which I poured love in only to have him say, “you would be embarrassed to have this in print” that was in 2011 when I was in Berlin.
    What has been going on? I love the new work!!! and all your work. I want to HAVE more
    are you coming to L.A. anytime soon?

    love, susan
