  • I was born in 1967 and fell in love, hard, for the first time, in November 1981. I was 14 years old and ripe for it.

    August 2010

    You always were a great writer. (FB comment on one of my notes)

    December 1981

    “Waiting for a girl like you” → Impromptu telephone serenade (by you to me).

    October 2011

    I recognized you, in my peripheral vision, on a downtown street by your walk. You do not live in my city. You do not often enter my mind. You are in love with your wife. I love you for that.

    Fall 1983

    First absolute heart break after first love. Evil curses by me to you and your now wife. I quickly move on {I see this only in hindsight}. Painful minute by minute play back. Back in the day.

    March 1996

    I love your quirky sense of humour.

    Damn you are fine, still.

    May 1985

    I love our honesty and our friendship.

    March 2012

    I’m so glad we've never fucked. It would have ruined a perfect life long friendship.
