  1. Do you remember when I filmed this in 2011? You and your friend were singing in the Subway. It is beautiful, as are you.

  2. Hi Leona! I just read your Modern Love essay. It is fantastic. I could very much relate to the very end where suddenly it occurs to you most of your fellow writers in the Catskills had no one to go home to. We forget how hard it can be to find and keep love. Just wanted to send you a bit of fan mail all the way from California. Nice work.
