Rita and Orson

August 13, 2011

“Dearest Angel Girl:

…I suppose most of us are lonely in this big world, but we must fall
tremendously in love to find it out. The cure is the discovery of our need for
company — I mean company in the very special sense we’ve come to understand
since we happened to each other — you and I. The pleasures of human experience
are emptied away without that companionship — now that I’ve known it; without it
joy is just an unendurable as sorrow. You are my life — my very life. Never
imagine your hope approximates what you are to me. Beautiful, precious little
baby — hurry up the sun! — make the days shorter till we meet. I love you,
that’s all there is to it.

Your boy, Orson”
