I like the way Simon's words sound. I can see what he writes of. His handwriting is amazing. My arm hurts just thinking about it. 'One cannot bring anything back by an effort of will.' Does Simon know I am American. The sound of the expression 'slam door trams' is something I have never heard before. I like when I hear English expressions and they still surprise me.
On Page 2 Simon is reading my mind. Does he know I have been researching the French Revolution for a silly idea I had for something DVS mentioned in passing. I must have know it all once, and it comes back, but I have not saved it in a place where I can find it in my mind. Simon remembers it all and is passionate about it.
As you will see the missing pieces did arrive! I have sent something back to Simon and hope to continue the conversation.
