  • Dear Bruce

    It has been 23 days since you were cut from your kin and came to live in my body. How are you settling in?

    I know for sure that you are working hard, constantly flushing and filling me with watery wonder-waste! Your action has returned sparkle to my dark eyes and, they say, velvet depths to my voice. My energy and appetite rises. You now cleanse my blood just as your mother washed away toxic hate and hurt when she offered me the gift of you. Your mother, my chica bella sister, bravely sent you to save my soul. She had heard my heart-sent silent howls for help. Her bequeathal brought bright hope and healing, which has shone through my visceral vessel and bathed my core in purple light. And to think I had fallen out with living, lost sight of the power of universal love! But that's another story and not for now.

    Bruce, I want you to know you are so very welcome in my body and that you should relax and feel right at home. I am willing my flesh to accept and enmesh with yours. Yes, our primal chemicals may fight the ancient battle of immunology, but if our spirit and volition travail together I believe we can learn to give and take and live as one.

    You must miss your maternal home, as you are sorely missed. We think often of your brother, poor bereft Billy, left doing the work of two; be assured that he marches on stoically.

    We have already come so far - thank you. Here's to a flourishing relationship!

    Love Jax
