    I enjoyed your fantastic piece Jingle Ball Rock at Onstage’s Holiday Shorts in Atlanta. It was my favorite piece, even though I had two pieces of my own produced. You were so good that you overcame my ego. I hate you. I love you. Your talent makes me mad. But then, I was already mad, to go into theater. Best of luck with all your endeavors, artistic and otherwise.
