Hey,friend. It’s good to see
You again. It’s nice that they
Gave you some fresh flowers.
Compared to the others, you
Are looking great. I think I can
Come again on Sunday if we’re
Not going out for the day. Just
To update you on a few things: John says hello. He still saves you a seat on the bus,
Just in case you decide to come back. I’m pretty certain that one of these days you’ll
Surprise us all and turn up. Chris says you still owe him a tenner, but this time he said
Don’t worry about it after I had a private word with him. The sun is definitely shining
Today. There isn’t a cloud in the sky. You’re lucky because you get to sunbathe all day.
It’s nice that you’re out here unlike those others in the shade. I bet they get very pale
In the summer. Belinda said she
Is coping well. She still feels like
You haven’t gone anywhere. It’s
Been hard for her, but she’s really
Strong. There isn’t much on television
These days. The cartoons aren’t the
Same anymore. What happened to
Getting up at 7am and seeing your
Favourite characters every morning?
I guess the times are changing.
I guess there’s nothing we can
Do about that. The world still
Turns even though you’re not
With us. I know you didn’t go
Anywhere, you just became
Of higher awareness. You exist
On a different physical plane
Or so they say. What the hell,
I’m no expert. I’ll shut up now.
Nicola asked me to give you
These, so I hope you like them.
Someone will be back, erm,
Tomorrow, I would think, to
Water them. Wow, it’ll soon
Be tomorrow. It’ll soon be spring. The seasons change
Alot faster these days. I swear they start earlier, too. Winter lasts
Alot longer, I’ve noticed. Spring is getting shorter, and so is Summer. I
Wouldn’t be surprised if Autumn did the same, though I think that’s extending
Into August now. Kinda weird when you notice these changes happening around
You. Makes you wonder what else there is to do with your spare time. I’m working on
A piece of artwork. It’ll soon be finished and hung in the gallery. I’d like you to come and see
It. I know you’ll be there in some shape or form. Well, it’s been great talking to you. We’ll have
To do this again sometime. After all, you’re not going anywhere. See you around, pal, and take care.
