    Hi Allison. Your name sounds vaguely familiar to me and when I noticed that you grew up on the upper West Side of Manhattan, I thought maybe you went to school with me at P.S. 87 on 78th street and Amsterdam Avenue. There’s also another girl who I remember from elementary school named Rachel Wegenroth who works at the Silvermine School of Art near New Canaan. I hope I’m not mixing you up with someone else. It has been a while. I’m 51. My name is Karen Mont Brown. I read one of your poems in the organic store in Ridgefield and it is beautiful. I’d love to hear from you.
