I’m having problems with my contraption which started smoking again. I wonder how much longer it will last or if my letters will continue to get to you from my year of 2014 to your year of 1983. I’ll keep sending and hope you will reply.
The other day something amazing happened to me. I am writing this book, The Broken Christmas Tree, and I sent it off for edits and the strangest thing occurred. The editor wrote me back a note and said that she had experienced a similar traumatic event as you did at the age of three. I believe she was only two years and six months old but close enough. It truly is an amazing insight to what is happening around all of us. How things just seem to fall into place with no real explanation.
I don’t think she sees shadowlings like yourself but she never said she didn’t either. I am left to ponder this thought. I have no direct communications with her as the company’s policy won’t allow it. But I’ve given it thought to see about hiring her again for my next book. I don’t know what I’ll write yet, maybe something of science fiction with a twist or I could just keep my options open for now.
Your friend, Cluster, sounds every bit the good story teller from what I’ve heard from you. He sounds larger than life, a great friend to have no doubt. Natural story tellers are the best I think at keeping everyone’s attention on the rise, and giving them either a good scare or a good laugh on the fall. Art is such an expressive way of getting our feelings out into the open don’t you think? Oh, I’m sending you the cover of my new book. I hope to have it out soon for others to read in the next few weeks. A lot depends on my final reviews of the book this coming weekend. Anyway, I’ll keep writing for a while longer if you don’t mind and keep me posted on your adventures. Maybe I can use those as inspiration for my next book.
Letter to Danny from The Broken Christmas Tree
