I had forgotten
I had forgotten that those letters could apply even when were old. I need to write a letter. Thank you.

A rekindled fire!
I have gotten the spark back just from hearing those short stories. The same flame that pittered out and died all those years ago. I am excited to read what I will write. I believe that it was his elaborate descriptions of the world he was creating in the stories that reminded me of the manner in which I wrote in my youth. I used to find myself overbearing and condescending in the tone of which I wrote, but no longer shall I see my writing that way. I am nearing forty years old now, and back when I was writing in that manner, I was merely thirteen or possibly younger. Either way, I have begun a youthful inspired love affair with words again. I believe a thank you is due!
