Dear Dawn,

it's 2021 right now, late May. covid is finally going away, I don't know if you'll remember when it left so I may as well include it. right now I'm writing and cowriting a lot of short stories, but you're probably writing some books. still, some of them might be fun to cringe at. right now our pets are Onyx, Rider, April, and Eclipse. i don't know if you still have any of them, maybe april. but in case you forgot them(somehow), onyx is the cat that made you love cats again. shes black, with amber eyes and a cute white patch on her chest. shes very sweet, and a p kitten, but a swear she prevents me from writing on purpose. rider is the lapnoian herder dog, he's growing up and mostly not chasing onyx. geese live 20 years, so I assuming you still have april. and eclipse is the beautiful killer bunny. she looks like the moon.

I'm sure you have a lot more knowledge and stuff than I do, but I figured I can just stick with this in case you lose your way. Always remember the church. stay active. remember God and thank him every day. I know that Heavanly Father, Jesus Christ, an the Holy Ghost are the Godhead. I know that the church is true. i know that Joesph smith found and translated the book of Mormon thru divine revalation. never lose sight of that. Love everyone, its not about sides or color or party. its about human lives.

always hate guinea fowl. always remember their awful screeches and know that they are the embodiment of evil, simply because they're annoying. i hope you finally got someone to shot them. and dont forget terry the trout, he will purge the land of the awful guinea fowl. 

i dont know what else to say. i could remind you of everything, I guess, but I think what I wanted to say was dont lose sight of whats important. and dont lose sight of how evil the guinea fowl are. also, assuming you're an author, will you please dedacte your next book to teen ink? i know you'll have mostly forgotten and be way beyond the level I am on ti, but face it, you wouldn't be writing so much, or maybe very much at all, without it. 

I'm sorry I couldn't give you more, I'm sure your smiling and remembering this time fondly, but I said whats important. say hi to East for me.

-past you


The author's comments:

I wanted to write a letter to myself. i don't know when, but I figured it would be really cool if I remembered this in 20 years and came back to read it. i put it on ti because even tho in the future I wont use it, its safe from me. i might destroy it in the near future if I don't put it up, and I figured why not upload it, it will be fun.

"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne

Maybe the two of you should get together sometime in person...
