Dear Henry,

“The One thing we can never get enough of is love.  And the one thing we never give enough of is love.” –Henry Miller, Insomnia, Or The Devil at Large

I am typing this letter to you, sitting upon my soft, brush suede brown, living room sofa, alone, at my artist loft.  I have just returned from physical therapy.  There is a small, beautiful, blue knitted blanket, which use to belong to Mr. B’s mother, casually folded and placed next to me, just in case my feet get cold. It’s placed where Mr. B use to sit as we engaged in conversation, cuddled, or ate dinner together. Because it…

Letter 48 – B is for Broken Hearted, Break up Letters, Benefactor, Bereavement, Bondage and Books

I’m writing this letter on 6/27/2112 at 2:41 P.M.

Dear Henry,

“First it was a broken toe, then a broken brow, and finally a broken heart. But, as I said somewhere, the human heart is indestructible. You only imagine it is broken.  What really takes a beating is the spirit. But the spirit too is strong and, if one wishes, can be revived.” –Henry Miller, Insomnia or The Devil at Large

I’m at home in the suburbs with my four dogs, six doves and my husband.  I am comforted by their unconditional love.  A new baby dove has been born.  She looks like a girl.  I am thinking about calling her June, because she was born during the month of June.  I’m also calling her June after Henry Miller’s infamous wife, June.  The…

Letter 12  Whispers To My Lover

“After dinner, Sophia, Josh, and Isadora were all three bemoaning the state of the world and smoking a little dope.  From which they professed into one of those discussions of “open” marriage which is clearly a come on.  Since Isadora could see Josh eyeing Sophia’s tits with undisguised yearning, and since Josh was in a deep depression following the publication of a book that was ignored, and since Isadora believed she could sooner keep him by holding him loosely than by trying to bind to herself his joy (to steal a metaphor from Blake), she didn’t protest when Josh maneuvered them all to the waterbed.” —Erica Jong, Parachutes & Kisses

Letter 11  Baths Before Burlesque Shows, New Beginnings, Overcoming Obstacles, and the Shock of Being Trapped and Exposed

12/11/2011 10:33 p.m.

“The difference between burlesque and the newspapers is that the former never pretended to be performing a public service by exposure.” —I. F. Stone

Dear Henry Miller,

It’s getting late.  I plan on going to bed soon.  But, I wanted to write a few sentences.  I have to paint a majority of the day tomorrow.  I am hoping to finish a portrait.  I have been working on for weeks.  My goal is to finish by Christmas time – which is quickly approaching.  The portrait is for the mural project.  However, my soul is itching to write.  I will have to do it in small segments throughout the day tomorrow.  I wanted to get a head start on it tonight.   The words I want…

Letter 10  Thunderstorms, Time Machines, Orgasms & The Bridges of Madison County

12/11/2011 – 8:52 a.m.

“When I was studying the Japanese language – but for a brief period – my teacher translated for me a beautiful letter to her niece by a noble Japanese woman, who was dying.  The niece was about to get married.  In it she expounded her probably ancient views on the true relationship between husband and wife.  To me it seemed the ideal prescription for a happy, lasting marriage… The keynote, as I recall it, was surrender (or submission, if you like) on the part of the husband and the wife.  Submission, surrender – these words are inadequate.  It was more – living for and doing for the other.  For, after all, when we try to define love, do we not think of it as living for the one…

Letter 9  Missing: Sexy, Black Bustier

Missing:  Sexy, Black Bustier

It’s been missing for almost two years – it simply disappeared

My Fredrick’s of Hollywood, sexy, black bustier

I don’t think I’ll ever forget how I lost–somewhere in the wintry frost

One of my favorite pieces of seductive lingerie

His wife was out of town for two nights – He bought me a short, pleated skirt – off white

Finally together – my lover and I had a sinful slice of quality time

My panties still get very wet – whenever I think of it – I sweat

So I told myself that I must put this erotic time into rhyme

I was a passenger in his car, unknowing – demanding, “Where are we going?”

I can still hear myself ask in frustration to this day

I remember it was snowing – I asked yet again, “Where…

Letter 7  Burlesque and the Rich and Zany Butterball

12/9/2011 8:13 a.m.

“The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware.” —Henry Miller

Dear Henry Miller,

My foot is still fucked up, throbbing, aching, and extremely irritating!  Another day of pain and confinement to the couch – pain and confinement might be nice in some circumstances, but this is not one of them!  I’d really like to paint either on the mural project, or work on a portrait that I’ve been painting for weeks, which will be a part of the mural collection.  My goal is to get it done by Christmas.  I will eventually tell you more about this project in a future letter.

I’m surprised that I have had the chance to tell you this much, so far.  I will transcend my…
