Florence morby.

[My first real shoes 1905, F. Morby]

I was probably most like her.
I met her once on my first birthday.
The more I encounter her antique belongings, the more I feel an intuitive connection, like magnets.

Her name was Florence Morby and she was a painter.

Lorris' letters.

There is a camp with magical creatures, that of the leprecaun, fish who know their names and Rosie, the spotted dragon.
Not far off from the camp island, a log cabin resides in the woods. The nature lady cares for the house, feeding it blue, silver and magenta flowers, framing scatt and reading stories with pictures. It is her friend Lorris, the barred owl, who crashes into the window of the cabin each evening from nocturnal vertigo. She is the post service, picking up the camper's letters for delivery. She usually does not return until dawn.
How gracious the kids were to have left a few letters too.

A broken unwritten but given rule.

How awful of me, I confronted (reluctantly) someone I thought may have submitted a burden. I shouldn't have.

Out of curiosity and neglected morale. To let you know I have compassion. I'm terribly sorry.

In exchange, I will send you my own and let you laugh.
But I did not laugh at you and I need to say thank you very much. How painfully beautiful the contents.

Let this be a thank you to the few that have contributed. I feel like the most fortunate person in the world reading them, handling them with all their weight. A profound something I cannot explain. I will make your boxes soon, I want to do best. I need to let the impact of them settle as they have effected me so.

Griffin & sabine.

Griffin and Sabine: An Extraordinary Correspondence is an epistolary novel by Nick Bantock, published in 1991 by Chronicle Books in the United States and Raincoast Books in Canada. It is the first novel in The Griffin and Sabine Trilogy and was a bestseller in 1991[1]. The story is told through a series of removable letters and postcards between the two main characters and is intended for an adult audience[2], as some sources describe the artwork as disturbing[3].

I insist.
