Dear Dr.   Felicia Hardison Londré.

«I want to thank you for And They Put Handcuffs on the Flowers by Fernando Arrabal. It was really (somehow) a moving play, and I haven’t stopped contemplating it. I even have ¡Viva la Muerte!  Thanksgiving break.  It’s amazing how offensive art can touch the spirit when there’s Truth behind the grotesque. I’m willing to believe Arrabal never meant to be a provocateur because of that Truth.  Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for opening my eyes to art I would have otherwise chucked out and asked for my money back. I hope you have a restful Thanksgiving and will see you after break! ».
