Hello David and Mary. Thomas is here in town now. Rolf too.
They'll both help.
It's Ash Wednesday. I keep thinking I should be doing something today and I just realised why. You know, you can take the man out of the church...
I had a chat with Will today. Thomas and I did. Thomas then proceeded to get insanely muddy in the freezing backyard with three dogs who are now hyperactive and won't calm down. Thomas's excuse? He missed dogs. Well, they certainly didn't miss him. I think he had a pawprint on his forehead.
Thomas makes things seem like they'll work out alright in the end.
David, I would say I can't imagine what you're going through right now, but the truth is I can. I know how it felt when Katherine took Lydia. And I hate to think of you going through that. I know you're not alone but I don't know how much other people would understand.
Tasha and Hope are having a bonfire to 'celebrate' Ash Wednesday. We're burning things we don't need anymore. Old letters and news clippings from Katherine and Antanasia respectively. Hope wants s'mores. If you wanted to come over and sit or talk or do anything, we'd be glad to have you. Thomas is here and he'd like to see you. And Mary and Christina, of course. And I even promise Thomas won't do a nude firedance. Or...if he does, I'll block him from view with a sheet or something... If you don't want to, I understand. But I wanted you to have the option.
I love you, David.
