EXPLANATION OF COLLAGE:
these are actual envelopes of letters i wrote to neal when he was in viet nam 1970-1971. he went there 79 days after we were married. it was a long stressful year, but he came home "with all his faculities intact" as j.d.salinger would say.
This is a beautiful and amazing piece Jennifer! Loved the story. I'm surprised that Neal kept those envelopes and brought them back home!
