What you said in your last letter explains a lot to me. My only guidance to you is be on your guard, keep your wit about and make sure never to tell anyone what you told me unless you think they can keep it a secret.
People often act strange when they find out something different about another person. It’s human nature I suppose. It’s been ingrained into us since the dawn of time but we learn, some of us. You’re friend Cluster sounds like a true friend. When you get older like me you’ll look back and see the wondrous thing of friendship and what it really means. We don’t often think of it until things have sort of slowed down and we have time to reflect. It’s okay, not to worry as you are young and I”m sure you probably already see some of what I mean.
Oh, I wanted to tell you that I’ve decided to pick up an instrument and learn to play music. I’m rather horrid at the moment but that will soon change as I practice more and more. My advice to you is try and learn music at a young age, it will be something you’ll enjoy for a very long time and one you can share with others. I’m excited even at my current age to learn and soon I’ll be able to share it too with my friends and family.
I look forward to hearing more from you. Please keep writing and don’t worry about the contraption thingy, it still works and hasn’t smoked for nearly a week. A good sign. I think that it’s on the road to recovery.
