This was the first email I received from him.
I’m embarrassed for not writing back to you sooner, As time has moved on since you wrote me, the harder it’s been for me to explain my silence, and the more guilty I have felt for shutting you out.. I’m still trying to figure it all out myself. I’ve bee cocooning myself in my own little space here the past couple of months, too often depressed, too often staying in my little zone of comfort that lately has been feeling more uncomfortable. I won’t talk more about it other than to say I’m sorry.

I’m going to keep on trying to work my way out of this malaise. Your wise words shine like a twinkling vision of light at the end of the dull and dim tunnel that I’ve found myself moving through lately. I can feel your lovely presence in my heart and I’m so grateful for your friendship and support.Thanks for accepting me, even through my times of trouble.Love, Jim
