I decided that I needed to meet Lost Boy. I told him that I had an active imagination, and I was afraid of concocting a story about us that wasn’t rooted in reality. He wrote back that he understood, and he’d like to meet me, as well.

“Very much so,” he typed.IMG_0579

I believed him but I was afraid that we’d get so comforted by our online connection that he wouldn’t want to risk destroying that by meeting.

I planned a trip to New Orleans in July, mostly so that I would be in driving distance of Morgan City, where most of his emails originated.

  1. These stories reflect your sensitivity, perception and courage. To take ones thoughts and put them into writing with such clarity is indeed a talent, to do it and have others read it takes fortitude. I admire that.


    1. Thanks, Mr. Lewis! That means a lot to me that you read this and said such nice things. Your comments are great encouragement. I look forward to meeting you. 🙂 Alison
