(I must have sent this first letter about 20 seconds after you had logged
Listen, I'm doing a paper on Toni Morrison's _Sula_, and there's a passage
that always makes me think of you: [don't take this the wrong way,
whatever that means, I'm not trying to use it to woo you, honest. Well,
not consciously, anyway.]
Then there was an afternoon when she stood before the mirror finger-tracing
the laugh lines around her mouth and trying to decide whether she was
good-looking or not. She ended this deep perusal by tying a green ribbon
in her hair. The green silk made a rippling whisper as she slid it into
her hair- a whisper that could easily have been Hannah's chuckle.
(Hannah is her mother) Anyway, the way you wore that one black ribbon
sticks in my head, and probably will for a while... it suited you so
well. (And in case you were going through the same decision process, I
would say yes, you are good-looking.)
Talk to you soon?
love to you,
"Messages off" is what shows up on Unix systems when a person
has set it so they're refusing chat requests.
