Dear Dr. Frye, 

Lucy Lippard has lovely legs and is a very good dancer. My little correspondance school concept of dance has to do with Quakers and Shakers and a book I once saw about the Shaker dances our first Meeting was held in a Quaker church I once attended a Quaker Meeting and a fly buzzed around deliver an Emily Dickinson sermon I saw a photo somewhere of her dress it really wasn't any different than Judy Garland's dress both had missing heads and Johanna Vanderbeek wrote from Hawaii saying there were lots of rainbows. 

Is Judy Garland there Over the Rainbow? [[image- outline sketch of a duck's head]]
