Hi Kerem.

Greetings to you there. I hope these few lines find you happy and doing well.

I seen your ad in S+L #43 and decided to drop you a few lines. I am constantly reaching out through correspondence to make new friends all over the world. I write to people of all colors, races, young, old, male, female. all religion, I let no barrier stop me. I only want to know where their head and heart are. If they are somewhere near the same plain where I am then we can be friends. In your ad you said that you love to make new friends as well so do I. So Kerem if you want a new true friend and not a plastic friendship I would be very happy to correspond with you.

Let me tell you a little about my self. I am 5 foot 7 inchs tall, brown eyes + hair, 170 pounds, single, the father of one 12 year old son, a native of Florida, Some of my interests are reading, writing letters, I like to exercise, weight lifting (light) walking, Jogging, bicycling, canoeing, I like the beach, good friends, sunsets, nature, camping out and more.

Well Kerem I will close here for now I do hope to hear from you in the near future, but if you have enough correspondence already could you pass my name and address on to someone else there who would like a pen-friend here in the U.S. Thank you, have a nuce day, Take care, later

Sincerely

Perry A. (Wizard)

First letters are always awkward to write, but in order for there to be a second letter, there should be something that triggers the recipient to respond. Perry’s letter was written when I was in a small town near Providence, R.I, during a week off from my Grand Tour. My grandmother died when I was in Minneapolis. Lonely, sad, missing the British guy I hooked up with earlier that month, grieving her loss. I needed quiet time, away from the madding punk crowd and the remote house, filled with videos, old copies of MRR, cats, an old dog and my friend’s ex-girlfriend who was eying 18 y/o me was the best hideaway place.

I returned home to find this letter a couple of months later. There was nothing in it that drove me to write Perry back. His weight-lifting hobby? the 12 y/o son? He found my address in Slug and Lettuce, so how come he didn’t mention punk at all? I didn’t write him back and never forwarded his address to anyone.
