I have written and re written memory's, thoughts, conclusion and fealings from me mostly,but also the fragments and the others. I have destroyed them all after a few days weeks or months. The letters and journals helped me figure out my thoughts and sort out all of the confusion. But they were a source of danger if some one found them. My family, coworkers, etc. Fear of freaking out a loved one or being betrayed, abandoned, black mailed, or even being laybled and ostracized by the comunity.... I always destroyed them all. Some times I would forget what I wrote and would find some of my writings month and years later. I was horrified if the wrong person would find them. So I shread.
But I could recreate most of it if I wanted to.
Could you recreat the letters? Not the same I know, your hand today not his back then. But you seam to rember how they felt back in the day.
I am glad you remember.
Just because it's complicated doesn't mean we can't figure it out.
