October 31, 1991 Hi Norman, Linda, & Gamaliel, Happy Halloween :) ! I received your letter (10/26 - 10/30) the last from Michigan before you made your way home. I've let go of Ted -- maybe he never got the right breaks in life ? or was able to recognize them. I still think that life is fun or should/could be fun , a joy to touch the Earth. (Yes, I still want to leave / be born on other planets :) ) Norman, would an interstellar alien abduction satisfy me ? I don't know. They are all fantasy, perhaps. Really friendly aliens, do they exist ? Would they even notice me ? Whew ! ;) Pete, nothing is ever what you expect .... Oh sigh ! this me will miss out on the universe. Norman, if the aliens landed, then a new incentive might be created for the Human Race, and maybe the planet would finally become unified. Sorry about all those letters waiting for you when you got home. Yes, I've read Engine Summer ; It has been a while since. Little Big , the reason I re-read it was because I was thinking of Jaynell :). I'll always associate it with her now. I do hope you, Linda, & Gamaliel find it likeable. (There is a minimum amount of sexual situations in it, but nothing I would consider to be censored for kids). Oh Gee, I wonder if Jaynell would enjoy being magikal like that (?). She & I stepped into each other's lives. Norman, I still try to unravel 14 years to have never worked at Wards; plus another 11 years and to have stayed in art school, learning to cope with my fears and actually becoming an arist. <- if so, then would we Jaynell & I, you & Linda & Gamaliel have ever met? yes, yes yes! Maybe I would have been travelling painting landscapes, or here in Michigan, painting orchards ... The Letter Exchange! yes, yes, yes. How different would it have been Norman? Another time, a distant memory. yes, one of these days I will send you a Photo of me ; It's just that, I don't look cute. Not even pretty :( . So many things that I find interesting, yet. I'm afraid to be known, or to network, or get too close. Do I have any goals in sight, insight? Does anyone, really? Ebb and flow. Has Jaynell written to you since she went to Arizona? Next week. I wonder if she waited 'til today to open my Halloween card? Norman all I seem to do is wait. Wait and see? Is that so? The only way? Man, Woman, Boys, Girls, Aliens, Timeriders. nexttime, until, nextime,
