Hey Preston! I met you at a festival a while back and remember you from one of your visits to the Center. We hung out at the Maurice Sendak exhibit at the Jewish museum across the street...

Hay, Preston! So glad that you're still scary and off the wall, wish I could be that bold! Stay funny! It's great to connect with you again!

hey Preston, how's the phd coming along. I did get in touch with Francoise in Paris, she's a script supervisor for Tv-video. I didn't see Genty. Are you still doing shows regularly? I'd really like to spend some time with you sometime-here in LA or NY or NJ or anywhere.

Hey Preston! It's been a while since I've seen you,  but I'll never forget your "Tales of the Brothers Grimy" that you heroically performed at the World Trade Center Plaza years ago with the roaring wind literally sucking the props out of your hands- it was such a lesson in perserverance and I admired your improv skills as the thing got out of hand- it was a brilliant performance and I never forgot it. It still ranks as one of my top five moments of live theater!

Sorry not to see you at the Natl. Festival this year. I make very few festivals, as traveling doesn't agree with me much-- I have to do so much of it in the fall and winter. BTW, we are hired to do the Punch and Judy show at Galveston Dickens on the Strand, which is way cool. For once, they asked me, and I named a price they could never meet, because normally we are doing wall-to-wall renfest performances then. But they met it, and so we're going back. It's such a super event. "Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside..." I'll be thinking of your P&J show, as we perform.

Animal Behavior? To what end?
