- "Dear friend. You are invited to a low-key party at The Coterie to celebrate my twenty-fifth year of life on this planet. We've all been so busy with our lives, following our own storylines, we haven't had our usual family dinners or salons. So as your present to me, I'd love you to share your talents with all of us. Please turn this card over and take this... Inspiration to prepare some sort of creative expression. The idea is to express yourselves. Because that is what sets us free."
