Even though we have become distant through the past few years, I have come to you when there was nowhere else to turn. I have explained to you those details, feelings, and emotions that I couldn’t release on anyone else. But I am trying to be faithful again and let you in on all the unimportant events I used to fill you with and reserve space until the big ones hit. You helped me prepare for those moments when writer’s block could prevent me from recording the most significant moments. So much has passed us by because of my reluctance to open up to you or to open you up. Maybe I’ll backtrack and record the most important events, but for right now, I am focused on capturing “now” and honing in on my best features.
