Paul,

I can't believe it took me 24 (Kobe Bryant) years to realize I could
get away with this. Americana's so sweet. The forms and materials
here are necessitated by my ideas, which are a bunch of cowboy
ideas I guess. You'll like what Charles said about it, that “to take the
work seriously, they can't take it too seriously.” Don't you love that?
Thanks again for everything and give Isabelle my best!

Sincerely,
Layet
