    Hello Mary,

    I greatly enjoyed your performance at BloomBars yesterday. After the program, I called my mama and "thanked" her. She laughed and stated that my phone call startled her, because she had never received a call from me (out of the blue) that began and ended with the words, "Thank you." Of course, she subsequently wanted to know if something was wrong? LOL. I told her about what you had shared with us at your reading and she said, Mary must be a very special and wise woman." I said, "She is mama, she is."

    Blessings and Congratulations,

    Michael, so sorry-- and disappointed -- that I had to duck out just before your reading yesterday. I hope to see you Saturday.

    Michael was superb. I had forgotten Whitman in my list of favorites. He's back. Thanks Micheal.

    It just so happened that in the afternoon I'm reading poetry as a part of Performetry 3-5 pm, and in the evening actors are reading my script, Street Life, as a part of the Black Theater Festival's New Works Series. So in case you were seeing my name double it's because as the fates would have it they're both on June 23. Hope I'll see you all at both ;-)
