“My daughter  has learned from  you the Artist’s ethic, truly. l Watched her the other day expressing her understanding of What it  is to be a writer and write. She was so absorbed in making the communication; she was speaking it from her toes. She said writing is about “making a connection from here to here (gesturing hand from her heart to her imagined audience’s heart), not from here (gesture from the head). My memory flashed instantly to you talking with her about what performance is, and what is it not.
What could possibly be more important to learn?”
