A letter from an Old buddy, Lost Acquaintance, Missing Friend, Absent Person:
I have been exited of proper mind as of late……I haven’t seen some people in months. Others I have yet to speak, hear, or see in more than a year. If I didn’t know any better I would say that I’ve become a hermit. That’s true. Whats better is that I have somewhat enjoyed it. No pretentiousness. No consistency with keeping up appearances……..Their is the fear of loss.
Yet no one knows of my whereabouts and I’m oddly content with that. Its something that I’ve grown up with and something that I’m comfortable with. You see, that space of years in the recent past was the exception rather than the standard. I’m just fine with being alone. Being the man in the shadows that watches but never participates.
But I leave you with this: for the weddings, the births, the promotions, and other important milestones I give you a blanket congratulations. I wish you all the best. I only ask for this: let me fade into obscurity in solitude. Thanks and you have a great night.
