Hey Maggie,

Great reading tonight! You were a pleasure to hear, meet, and talk with. It was indeed creepy hearing you describe the ol' bridge in Providence. I tell people I like it because it's an antique, and nobody understands, but it's good to see another eye caught and made use of it in creative work. I never remember seeing rows of cars with men in them, though the one time I went there during the day it gave off a very sketchy presence.

Anyway, thanks again!
