Hi Tami
It's been a very long time
An Entire lifetime

I was meant to spend my life with you. Many things went wrong and it didn't happen. That's my life's great tragedy and great sorrow.

Last time we spoke I was standing at a pay phone on pier 16 in Long Beach. It was dark and windy and slightly raining. I was freezing cold. I made a horrible mistake. I didn't say I love you. I didn't scream I LOVE YOU as loud as I could. I didn't know it was my last chance. I didn't know I'd be unable to find you again for almost 20 years. I didn't know that yet another 16 years would pass, still without being able to tell you I LOVE YOU. Now it's 2021 and I miss you as much as I ever have.
I'll say it now, to be certain I don't repeat the past mistake.

Some of the pages on my web space are things I've written to you or about you. Everything was written with you in mind.
The book Delight is a philosophical odyssey of mine. The thought of you understanding it one day, has been a source of joy since the 1980s. It's not easy for most people, but I hope you'll explore the possibilities with me.
My web space is divided into sections. The Home Page has links to index pages for each section. I'd like you to read everything, but maybe that's expecting too much. There are many pages just for you and many more which I'd like you to see. Hopefully they're all tagged with ❤️ for you to easily notice.

I hope that enough remains of the girl I love, to want to read it all. I know it's not reasonable to expect that to be true, but please learn as much about me as you can handle. For a very long time I have only wanted for you to know that I still love you. It's been true for every moment of every day since 1975. My heart has never given up on our love, and now you finally know.
As I promised a lifetime ago,
I Love you, ALWAYS
