To the woman who keeps writing me back

Posted on Fri, Mar 9, 2012 at 12:00 PM

To you, who looks for my words and understands the ones I don't say. I long to tell you them, but time is still healing old wounds. You give me three words each day, and I give you many more. To be frank, "It’s wonderful to get out of bed and drink too much coffee and smoke too many cigarettes and love you so much." You leave me wordless and hopeful, so frequently and so beautifully. In a way that helps me grow and understand. I hope that each person out there looking for connection will find someone who takes them out of their element, and teaches them anew in all the ways you have taught me so far. One of the greatest joys is that I know that there is so much more to come. —Hand Over Mouth, Heart Over Mind
