"Catherine, for once I have this funny feeling that I'm on a trip
that's too weird for you! I hope you'll bring yourself to understand."

That's what Lynne wrote me in email in December of 1982,
perhaps because when she told me over the phone that she was pregnant,
I asked, "Will you get an abortion?"

It was a foolish question.
It was not the product of careful reading.

Our messages slowed, then stopped, after the baby was born.
