Wait, did I read your bio wrong? I just saw that you are in San Marcos, TX, not at Columbia. Either way -- welcome. :) (I grew up in San Antonio.)

Dear Nelly,
It's really wonderful to have you here, I just did some reading about you and your work (got to you through Angie Cruz's page) and wanted to say, among other things, that I got my MFA at Columbia too -- how are things there?

Warm best,
Kamy
