I start I will apologise if my letter (assuming it ultimately
makes it way to you) is intrusive or unwanted. I have
never written to any author before but feel compelled

laughed and cried, I denied and rationalised, I puzzled
and realised, I felt loved, I felt real, I felt hope
and most importantly, I knew that I was reading Truth(s).

that I was learning something that I already knew....
Several episodes of goosebumps and I had to close the
book and walk away after reading the first few lines
of the appendices.
