Loving Justine Black


9.10pm:

 

‘Hands to Heaven’ – Breathe


 

A scrunched and squidged face all eyes and teeth, growling… 

 

MANY CONGRATULATIONS TO ROGER WATSON + SUZ COLE: ONE YEAR TOGETHER!

 

So.  That fateful day in 1987, eh?  That gig in West Lynn.  It’s a year on.  And I don’t suppose it’s a surprise to anyone, or even unreasonable, that I should say this, but…

 

I LOVE JUSTINE BLACK a great deal.  I never tired of her.  Just lately we’ve been spending quite a bit of time together, laughing and having fun.  We really are very good mates.  I think she’s really glad I came back to Tech.  What will the future give us?

 

WHAT A WONDERFUL LIFE!

 

Strange that Justine’s been listening to ‘Nightporter’ lately – as have I.  She’s also been listening to ‘This Corrosion’ and all the tapes I did her.  And she’s been re-reading my letters, etc.  I’ve been re-reading hers.

 

IS THIS SIGNIFICANT?

 

That ‘WINTER’ feeling is back.  It’s beautiful, too.

 

AND I LOVE MY PURPLE HAVEN.

 

OH, AND I’VE BEEN GIVEN A LITTLE PINK STUFFED RABBIT THAT BETTY MADE! 

 

Tonight, I went out with Miranda.  Again, we didn’t make love, but the love is still there.  We kiss a lot and laugh a lot, but something’s changed.
