      Liza, thank you for your enthusiasm and support!! We are building on high ground; even the typical summertime monsoon-like rains are a force to be reckoned with (as our builders have seen these past two weeks) so we are committed to keeping our project on dry land as much as possible.

      Michelle, thank you! It would be wonderful if you could come with your children; do check in with our website www.dithyrambalina.com for performance dates, open hours, and workshops. There will be a lot to do, see, and hear with us soon!

      Swoon and Airlift,

      I hope that your project goes through, I am excited to see a dream that I have had as an architecture student being pursued by one of my favorite public artists and in city that deserves community involvement. Please have the house be out of the flood zone. This is my only plea. Congratulations and good luck.
