Someone just e-mailed me 100 pickup lines. Did that last e-mail I sent
you sound like a line? Oh well. It *was* a beautiful day... I'm upset now,
because it's so dark so early. When is the shortest day of the year?
Not too long from now I hope, I can't stand not having sunlight.

About this weekend.
"She moved so easily / All I could think of was sunlight"

I know this letter is kind of a heap. Let me know
if I've struck any chords that resonate in you, or
if you just want some ice cream.

to an emotion that needs more time to baste, that
trying to hard is what can kill things the quickest--
Yours through daylight dreams,
Never did get to NYC with her, dangitall.
