Dear family,

I am writing by the side of an incredible fountain. The water forms the hair of a pair of mermaids, sitting with shining brass scales, their hands fingering the sheen of the water as it cascades down their necks. The water is a cool, clear green, like the bottom of an antique 7 Up bottle.

I am writing to let you know that we are all safe and sound. We couldn't be better. We are all working very hard here but we're doing exactly what we wanted to do. Being something we could never be before.

Please don't worry about us any longer. We will write when we can.

Love to all from all of us.
