To Kelly Kleiman,

After just reading your review of Landmarks [September 1], I really felt it important to respond, however briefly. (Please note: I have responded to one reviewer in my life and now you.) I don't think in all of my years of being reviewed (and there have been a few) have I EVER experienced such a hateful, mean-spirited, and clueless review. I don't know what you saw, but I certainly think you missed the boat. One quick comment is that the character of Ceil is posing for three artists, yes Kelly, let's count 'em--not two but three--and not posing for an audience. Ceil is posing for an art workshop. Ya didn't get it babe. One thing I know for sure and I will tell you outright, that I refuse to let this review make me feel ashamed of what I have accomplished in this piece. You, on the other hand, should be ashamed.
