Okay.. well… seeing as how I’ve not conversed with Tarsia in probably several years… If she ever reads this it will probably be a fair while from now.. at least until after i’ve located her mailing address (that would be snail-mail… does that still operate?) and got ahold of her..
it’s been… probably something like 15 years since i’ve seen Tarsia… she moved away with her family and i couldn’t believe she could be okay with leaving, and then i moved away with my family and i understood.
this will be brief… i’ll owe you a longer letter anyway, Tarsia..
I know you must be well whereever you are, because you were always a shining person. always. and one of my favorite people in the world. i hope you’ve had a beautiful birthday today, whether you’re still in Germany or elsewhere, and whatever you’re doing and whomever you’re with. I do still think of you and I’m looking forward to seeing again you someday… the two of us grown and growing up.
