Written in the mid 80s

The first love of my life had a quirk that made me laugh. After a few moments of silence, out of nowhere she would loudly say: "OK, LET'S GO!" It was as if we'd been discussing going somewhere and she'd just decided to go, but no such discussions ever took place. It provided insight into the workings of her mind. Clearly she'd been debating with herself and the exclamation came on settling the debate. It was always followed by her telling me where she wanted to go.

Tamara Jo,

I still love you as much as I ever loved you.
