What you find when you go through old family papers.
These are from a stack of letters I wrote my parents while I was
1000 miles away at the State University of Iowa.
I loved it there.
But I missed my family terribly. We were very close.
If these had been emails, I wouldn't be photographing them today.
Nor would I have the chance to revisit evidence of how close we were
and how happy I was.
I think it is a very sad state of affairs.
