Longleaf Stories

full circle in the hundred acre wood

Dear ___,




I see it in your eyes: that intersection of inexperience, desire, insecurity and the innate power of being beautiful; an explosive cocktail. You’re going to be in situations that can lead to heartbreak, disaster, or missing the one big entrance-ramp to the destiny of your dreams.


Do you understand that this might be your only shot? Sex is fabulous, but never mistake, my darling, it is a loaded gun, and one which sometimes backfires.




I also know there are situations in any young woman’s home which are likely to lead to a screaming fight and a big dramatic scene where the heroine, (you, of course), slams the door and walks out on her parents.




Rough seas ahead. Danger. Warning.


You have already decided that no one understands. I saw that in your eyes, too.





Don’t go it alone. Talk to me. I won’t judge, but I won’t let you go down a blind alley either, or fail to tell you what I know.





Speak. Leave a memory.
