“Chaotic Renaissance” – The 14th of July 2001 – Orange City, Iowa

(found by a flower)

Hello Nancy,

This is a warning, but I’d advise that you take it as nothing more than an announcement.

I have underwent, and am probably also considered to be going through a renaissance – literally this time. A rebirth.

Perhaps the warning comes from the fact that this process is not going to be and will not be one of those cutesy, springtime turnings over of a new leaf. No, no. This is a violent and desperate and destructive reinvigoration, something so extreme, something that causes my being and my world to change so drastically that everything might appear to have remained just the same.

But, no worries Nancy, I will have changed. I know that I will have changed. I have made a choice, a conscious choice, and I will now just act accordingly. Things will fall in line. I trust that they will.

I trust that they will.

Perhaps this isn’t the result of my own choosing or my own doing, but that is no matter to me. I can only thank the circumstances that pushed me down this pathway and away from the stagnancy that lay behind me.

I remember saying, at one point in my life, that, if I ever had to go back to that place, I’d kill myself. And I guess the truth is that I have – symbolically, of course. Because now I plan on returning with a smile on my face and both of my arms wide open.

But there it is: my corpse at my feet and me standing over it, standing over it for just a second before I move on and walk away. And so I shall. I shall move on and walk away. I shall. I shall and I shall and I shall.

Trust me.

I shall.

Dearly,

Belinda
