“The real reason Sacagawea should be disregarded [as the name for your new cat] is that the kitty cannot travel for shit. You should hear her screams when she is in the car…If the real Sacagawea was like that, Lewis & Clark would have done a lot less exploring and a lot more whispering “it’s ok, don’t cry” and bribing her with Sacagawea Snacks.

Subject: Hi!

I’m just sending a little “Hi” message to let you know that I am
thinking about you and giving you “virtual” hugs!!!  You make me so proud
that you are going after a good education and seeking out new and
interesting activities in your life.  You have everything in the world to
be happy about, so let the happiness in!!  I could be writning “I love you”
all over your Facebook wall (Ha! Ha!!), but no fear of that since I’m so
technologically challenged!!  Hope you have a good day and that you like
your classes.  Keep busy!  I have some coupons that I’ll be sending soon
and don’t forget to look out for your phone in the mail!  I love you
bunches and bunches!

Subject: RE: Happy New Year

Well, if I recall correctly, that gardening table incident was quickly snuffed out by dad, as I pretended to act like I didn’t know how it all erupted in flame (I’m cracking up as I write this….), but I do remember claiming that I was “just in the garage looking at the shelves when I noticed the flames coming from the basement”. I must have been about 8 or 9.

It was a long night that night as dad grilled me severely and loudly, surely the whole house could hear. About 1/2 hour later, as I finally made it upstairs (time could be radically skewed here as I was so young – probablycmore like 2 1/2 hours), I distinctly remember you meeting me in the kitchen, apologizing for “if I was mean to you or anything”. You were just so apathetic and feeling sorry for the torment I had just gone through, and for what? Just because I wanted to ignite a stupid bag of seeds (laughing histerically now)….So the moral of the story is that you should never play with matches near the gardening table, especially if it’s in the basement of the primary residence….

Now, I’m leaving out the antique dresser that was stored in the garage (I truely believe I was the ONLY one in on this one) and the torching of multiple road signs with flammable spray cans (the enging starting fluid was the best ’cause the flames would throw like 6 feet). I’ll leave you to fill in the blanks.

Mom, seriously, we’re all good kids. Take all of this with a grain of salt. We were just kids looking to have a good time. If it weren’t for Matt F___ I never would have known how to make bombs…….And I was the “bad influence” :-|

Love you all!

Sender 2: but i think if you decide to leave
Sender 2: it will be one of the hardest things you ever do in your whole life.
Sender 1: i think that too
Sender 2: i don’t know. there are things i want to say to you because when we talk about these issues, i feel like you’re being really honest with me.
Sender 2: and what it sounds like you’re saying is ‘i think i want to leave but i dunno if i can’
Sender 2: and i really don’t want you to think that i have something against him
Sender 2: or getting married
Sender 2: because it’s not those things.
Sender 2: it’s that you sound like you know what you want, but you’re terrified of what you want
Sender 2: which is completely understandable because sometimes the things we want require us to do things first that are really really scary
Sender 1: i agree
Sender 1: with all of that
Sender 1: and i do want to leave
Sender 1: BUT
Sender 1: if i leave, i want it to be for the right reasons

Subject: I love you

“It’s still nice to have physical evidence…even if it’s just online.

I cant rub your back and type at the same time.  But physical evidence?  Do you think that I don’t love you?  Cause I do.  Here’s how it goes… I love you.  like…that’s it.  Other girls are less everything in my eyes.  They aren’t as pretty as you are and they certainly arent as interesting, funny, entertaining, sweet, or nearly as big of a pain in the ass (and they certainly don’t try to read over my shoulder like you do :p)

So don’t tell me that I don’t physically love you because the love that I have for you literally fills up every part of my being (don’t think that’s creepy pooky).  Oh and the reason that I got on gmail is so that I could change my password so you can’t check to see what I bought you from ebay….   :-)

Love you darling.”

Subject: hi

honestly, i’m so drained right now that i don’t think i could type out the note to you. summary: i basically said “i don’t love you. i just love that you love me.” and “i used to love you but don’t think i do anymore and don’t know why.” and “i sometimes feel trapped by being in a relationship but am afraid to be single.” and “we got together too soon after our last relationships.” and “i WANT to love you and i enjoy being with you but don’t know what brought on this lack of love.”

things like that. she read it and cried of course…but she understood and thought that it was a good and honest note. we talked a lot after that and were just very honest about how we felt. she is so in love with me and i told her i’m not in love with her like that right now. she wants me to try to find that love for her again…and i want to try to find that love too. i do enjoy being with her, i do.

something that i have gone through in the past 3 months (which is about the amount of time i have felt a lack of love) is that i have basically gone from christian to agnostic. i mean…not FULLY…but that’s basically what i have felt like concerning religion. and something that i loved about ___ when we first got together was that she was serious and real about god. she was not a conservative christian, she was real about it. and i really loved that about her. but now that we both don’t feel like that anymore, i think that took away 1/3 of why i wanted to get with her in the first place. ya know? but it’s not like i WANT her to be super extra christian again…it’s just that that part is gone now and probably won’t return. so i need to find other things i love about her to fill that void.

it’s hard for me to think of why i stopped loving her suddenly, and the religion thing is the only thing i can pinpoint. i also told her about how it was easy to love you and that i haven’t faced this issue with anyone else in my life. she said “that is a hard act to follow because she’s pretty, and smart, and talented, and has a bachelor’s degree.” so at least you know she thinks highly of you. and she’s right, you are a hard act to follow…..especially given our unique understanding of one another. but i can’t compare the two relationships too much because i will dig myself into a hole.

anyway……give me any feedback you can/want. talk to you soon.

HI THERE! Just for the record, I remember you nicely. Recently I knew about your choice of life (my life is built upon the words, so I don’t fear them: you being gay) and because of this I thought long and hard about you and the time we spent together.
When Manuel finally got to tell me about you openning to him I had the weird feeling that exists in the border of understanding and hesitation. Sadly, my latin-macho-man took a low blow, thinking of me of one of the last male having the pleasure of your lips (perhaps) but after that I have to confess that some part of me felt happy for you since you realized that making that choice may get you to happiness.
I hope you remember how I always have been a being divided, and in this case it was no exception. I felt divided between the time we spent together and the choice you have maid. Luckly, the best side of me won this inner battle and now I can say that I think this new spin of your life is going to be satisfactory for you. You, as I remember, were a person looking for something to light up your life (or is it “lite up your life” I don’t know wether my English is too poor or my Spanish in impossible to translate). Maybe, this was it, don’t you think?
Chela, my dearest Chela, uncorruputed musician, joyful nymphet, memoire of my happiest days between my youth and my adult life… I feel proud of you. I expected no less from a person such as your self like saying “this is me”. That’s what I keep saying to the freaking world, so, in such matter, I feel not only proud but respect for you,
Lovely, and still reminding you in the strings of a sad, lonely guitar, your dearest Fresh…

Atte. Luis
