So picture this - I am at an arabic restaurant in downtown Seattle,
enjoying a birthday celebration for a friend of mine. Many people -
I don't know a lot of them. A nice young man grabs my hand and says -
who did this?

I have been practicing out of your book and had a beautiful hand
design that was a combination of your Design No. 21 and 28, includnig
the farsi words "God is With You."

I said - I did the design, but it is Persian. He said, I know it's
Persian, I'm from Iran. I started telling him all about you adn your
book and what a wonderful treasure it is. He said - what's the boy's
name - I said Erfan Malodji and you should have seen his jaw drop
wide enough to fit the Grand Canyon in!

It was your cousin!!

So he said he has not seen you since you were about 11 and he was
amazed that you were so involved in henna. I showed him your book.
He was totally jazzed!

If you want to send him a message, send it to me and I will pass it
on. He is playing music with a persian band that my friend is dancing

ps - he corrected my calligraphy - I put two dots over one of the
letters instead of one dot!

pss - I know you are going through a lot right now, just get the $$
to me when you can. If you sign up with PayPal it would be easy to
pay me - you can do it all online by sending a payment to and it will go straight into my account. I
appreciate it, I'm really broke right now.

ppss MOST IMPORTANTLY, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your
granny. I'm sure the love and regard of her family is helping her
through her life's transition right now. You are so lucky to have
that bond. I know she is must be happy that your passion will
continue the traditions she has worked all her life to preserve!

Best regards,
