    Darling. I'm on my way home. And boy does this feel great!! I haven't felt so alive in years! This was the best decision I could have ever made for myself. I think before we go on our own sojourn together, you should take one by yourself.
    You'll learn so many things about yourself, you never thought about. I learned how to be happy with the simple little things in life, such as just smiling because the sun is out, or smiling just because you woke up and you are living.
    Eric, love, you know how much you mean to me and I would not suggest this to you unless I thought it would benefit us and our future. And no matter what you decide we will take our sojourn together. And maybe visit Paris, or maybe Rome! We shall plan it out when I return and after you have time to think about your own personal trip.
