Dear Mom,
Imagine, long ago, those sharing this little orb had been enlightened. Center of Universe? Incredible whole makes our omnipotent illusion of self-importance appear absurd. Seems more important now to be ecology minded, but thoughtless, systematic destruction of Earth, each other and ourselves prevails. A mass of confusion. Bombs don't build. I know, perception is relative..Well, you asked for a letter..

Last evening, along with a couple fellow students, I witnessed a visiting UFO, big as a jet airliner. No blinking lights. No sound. Just bright blended colours, forming an extended triangle; red at vertex. Was amazing! Made me recall freshman year experience. As then, it approached low in Eastern sky. Many area sightings have been reported recently on local news. Strange occurances, as well, like cars and deer doing about-faces on highways. Native Americans once held tribal councils just north of here, keeping watchful eyes on French and British navigating river below. Perhaps, we are still being(s) observed from above..

Speaking of autos and 'dear', Maureen is getting a car from her brother.

Thanks for my birthday card! I'm giving Reen an angora sweater for her birthday.

Hint: I'd like a cassette recorder/player for Christmas. They are $39 in JCP's catalogue. Reen is getting me an AM/FM radio, with 24hr weather station. Although P/T, she receives a nice employee discount.

Excuse my poor penmanship. It's difficult in this awkward position. Pen doesn't do well upside down...

*Unfinished letter from college to my Mom... October, 1973.

Unvaulted. (33 years later)

Much Love,

below the subliminal
deep within manipulation
that's where tr^th resides

Do you save everything?
How brave of you to share your youthful discrections. I shall share- not right now, perhaps later- or not. I have only the memory of youthful writings; perhaps better lost than found. I am digging through youthful files perhaps best left to lie dormant.

John- Thank you kindly.

Wanda- Your continued interest is greatly appreciated.

Soos- Yes, saved every scrap..Dated, as well.
As for "stuff" minimalist. Don't save anything else. Thanks.

Lucie- Thank you. Your thoughtful words are much appreciated. Glad you found levels.

Looking up,

Dear Mom, (and Ron)

You cracked me up at Ken's rant. Made me recall this one. I hold no hard feelings. I thought you might get a kick out this unfinished letter, penned thirty-seven years ago, discovered in a box of writings/papers dating back to college.
