Memory Cloth — Isthmus Ad

Divorced for years I decided to put an ad in Isthmus.  It took a year for me to figure out exactly what to ask for. 

I put it in around Valentine’s Day. 
I got 12 letters.  Craig’s stood out-
3 legal size pages – he wrote a paragraph on each word I wrote.  Smart, funny and kind- I knew I wanted to be his friend.  It was the only letter I answered. 

We talked on the phone 3 hours.  We met at a coffee shop and talked for 5 hours.  When we stood up to leave I realized he was shorter and younger than me.  I never would have thought of him romantically, if I’d met him the usual way.
