This is part of the country we flew by on Kauai yesterday. It was truly very lovely. I will see you soon. With love,

Leonard's comments:

My dad's prose style often seems ritualized. Like he might see a dozen different landscapes but he'd classify them all as "truly very lovely." Even when he drops one mask and lets his emotions bleed through into the writing, there's still this other mask keeping me from understanding him.
