respite

Taking the letters on vacation.

On vacation for a week at home, but I toted the box of letters, both those scanned and recorded and those still in the envelopes, with me, because now that they are more than just those letters under the bed, I was conjuring all sorts of scenarios of fire and smoke and water damage or vandalism if I left them for a week.

It’s funny how small a package of over 350 letters seems, maybe more so to you than to me now that I know what a time-consuming task it all is and what a huge body of work is represented in the text of the letters.

I hope the remaining letters enjoy their last weeks in their comfy envelopes before coming out into the light of day.
