When I got in from Ryerson tonight – a small but amazing class – an email from an old friend was waiting for me. On the Subject line she wrote: Oh God I’m loving the book.

And underneath it said: 
Just arrived today!

Can’t put it down!
Was supposed to be working!
Thank you very much!
I have to tell you, I still don’t believe that it works. I assume that maybe people like it at the beginning but then by the end will be disillusioned and disappointed. It doesn’t go far enough, deep enough, do its job. Just not quite right.

But maybe not. At least, for old friends.
