Hey Brian,

I don’t mind if from here on out you call me George as long as you let me refer to you as ‘Dick.’ (Yeah, that seems a lot more fitting)

So… umm, Dick,

Oh my, funny how much simpler that feels. Too much so.

All, dicking around aside, I really have to ask you what’s the deal is? I thought you were picking up on my not so subtly saying you should leave this lady in jail to herself. I didn’t want to go so far as to come right out tell you ‘in no uncertain terms’ how much of a tool you are going to come off as by instigating any versions of the various plans you’ve laid out. But, I guess ignoring her, regardless what nonsense she may have written you, isn’t something you ultimately wanted to do if you went ahead wrote her anyway. Who knows, maybe it’s just me reading into the

sorts of plans you’ve come up with as a means to retaliate, but I’m starting to place real concern that it’s entirely possible you’ve been plotting misdirection on me also, at the very least, insofar as how you lead me to believe you were going to approach all of this with sounder judgment. Who knows, maybe I’m just injecting assumption between the lines of what you haven’t written, as you never strictly wrote you weren’t going to do anything crazy, but if you were willing to go forward with any of your various means of chicanery, it leads me to worry you might still be willing to also involve me, regardless my consent. To which, that is something I take dire opposition to and in no uncertain terms am telling you: ‘I want no part in!’

Anyway, you do what you want, as long as it only effects you. I just warn you to be mindful who you play games with. While some of the people that land in prison are decent folks that found themselves making a bad

choice at the wrong time in the wrong place, I imagine there are those in prison not to be trifled with. Any of which could come out holding a grudge. While the decent folks may not execute any direct retribution, I imagine they get to know and on occasion befriend the people that have no problem with it, which doesn’t necessarily bode well for your wellbeing.

At this point though, all I can really do is take a (breath). Obviously, I can’t really do anything more than I already have. However, even though I don’t want to say ‘I’m confused’ about what you’re doing, it’s obvious you got the idea to jump the gun despite our discussing giving her the cold shoulder, I am kind of confused as to the logistics of your methodology. Were I actually wanting to be a part of your plan (and again, I’m not), your reply to her (as per your new, current plans) was probably in the mail long before your (second (train) 

letter) outlining the older plans for me had even arrived. You can’t just go putting together elaborate plans, send them to me via a letter and then change them while those (now old) plans are still in the mail and haven’t yet arrived. It’s not effective, anyway, I don’t want to give you any further constructive criticism. As convoluted as each set of your plans has been, you’ve seemingly complicated them even more, so maybe all my worrying over your pulling any of this off is for naught.  

To answer one of your more pressing questions though, I don’t know how soon is too soon or how late is too late to throw in the towel on your dreams, I suppose you just have to sacrifice your comfort for what’s bearable for as long as (is) within reason. I wouldn’t say die for your art, but for some folks that is exactly what they want to do.

With that said, hopefully this finds you before you have left on your trip. If it doesn’t, I hope it goes well. I can’t say I know of anything in Utah to do besides a Jazz game, but it sounds like you have things pretty well figured as to where to go and what to do anyway. There are those wind blown, rock arches somewhere around Utah, though isn’t there, near Moab I think? And monument valley is around there too if I remember right. Those would be something to see.

I still don’t know quite what to say in regards to all the art you send. It’s still mind blowing to consider how much time you must spend on all of it only to glue it down and send it off in letters. In any event, I’m probably going to buy or make a couple frames to rotate the work through, so it doesn’t just reside in a drawer somewhere. I’ll tell folks I drew it. How’s that? Nobody compares

handwriting anymore, unless a crime has been committed, in which case, I’m turning them all over without contest. Just so you’re aware.

I also can’t say I had ever heard of the Mandela effect before your mentioning it, but thanks for consistently making me question reality on many different fronts. Ever consider maybe the reptilians did it? You’ve heard of them, right? Look into that. You entertain the manipulative ideas I’m sure they do.

Later, Dick

-Brian
