hi Kelly,how are you doing? I hope all goes well?
I can see you have many people who write to you. You are popular! :) Today I was in Holland, The Netherlands, with Wim, a good friend of mine.I used to go to Breda with Kathleen to dance in a group: Dance your Light, it was called.
Wim came a few times to where I live, Antwerp, but now I was invited by him. He felt like a brother to George (he saw our photo together, taken in the visiting room!);they had the same age and the 3 of us talked a lot about music!I still have a list of the songs George kept for a reason. In the past his dad sent me LP's and cassettes, with his preferable songs on it. :)In my hallway I have a glass empty vase and when I listened to one of his given songs, I put the title of it in that vase.It remembers me of my love. -smile. When we visited, I wrote French phrases on a sheet of paper, and we studied French... he loved it so very much. :)
Wims partner Martine died in the year when George died. But he met on a dating site a new friend.I'd like to meet a man, as I do not like to stay alone. George would have liked me to be happy in my life. I know one day I will meet that special man in my life, Kelly. I'm on a dating site as well.I see so many photos of men. Until now I just chat with 3 people. But nothing serious yet.I swim 4 times in a week in the swimming pond.As a polar bear.;)Love it! And I play half an hour each day on the piano: jazz.So, Kelly you can send a corr. message and I will give an answer, okay? Have a great time, and receive a big hug from Rita! x

hello Kelly, yes I got your letters.I still mourn about Georges death. He taught me a lot! He was an activist and brought changes. His friends were devastated by his death! I still write to 2 of his closest friends: Too Tall and Joshua.He was many years with his friend T T in one cell. He called him uncle Pete. George was a true leader! A very charismatic man too! Joshua (a very good artist!)and he made a watercolor for me of my young parents. George made two big pencil drawings: him and me and another one like an Escher, presenting his large hand, holding a round mirror where I can see him on his bed, his sink, his radio and earplugs, the cell door and window, his fan, his Tv with on the screen me sitting at the beach,a mouse (his alter ego)jumping in the sink, etc He must have worked months at it!!Almost in each letter he made a cool drawing. With humor. I've hundreds of his letters! But most of all he gave me the music!! I hear him in the songs,... Music made him survive!... Locked up since the age of 18 and he died in prison, at the age of 71,... how truly sad that is! He was a great person, in a narrow life. :( He had his mission in prisons, Kelly. On a dating site I know a friend, John, 74 and he is British. After the pandemic he invites me to England. He works in Wildlife. On the 14th, 15th and 16th of January we will hike, Veerle (pronounce as 'Varle' -a as in c'a'ge)),a woman and good friend. We've vegetarian bio food they cultivate there.It's a center in the Ardennes.(=woods)I don't know if there is snow? I've my skying outfit. Each day we hike at least 15 kilometers, that seems to be 9 miles. We had also in the past a B&B of 4 days in Sainte-Ode, also in the Ardennes. There we hiked each day 12 to 15 kilometers. Veerle took the sauna, I swam in their swimming pool.
Kelly, this is my letter to you. I wish you a very Happy New year!A warm year full of Imagination and Surprises! All the best! Your friend, Rita xx
Ps. Because they searched for somebody (Walter) on D R who talks Spanish, and couldn't find a person, they asked me to be his pen pal. 28 he is and is innocent!... :( He has no lawyer, and hardly speaks English... He is from Guatemala.

correction: 'skiing' ;)

Leslie rejected me as her mom. Because I helped George, chose him instead of her. But it wasn't a choice! Taking his protection didn't mean she came on the second place. But she interpreted it as this.:( I will write her a 'moving' letter. A letter in which I explain her EVERYBODY deserves a second chance, me too, she as well.
I didn't get a New Year card nor any news. She remains silent.
I visited my mom in Brussels(she is 95 and still lives on her apartment)and there I saw Leslie's card. I call George's dad just every week. He is strong! 98 he is, and he has the voice of a younger man.:o He calls me daughter and I call him dad. :) He said: you always were my daughter. I asked on Fathers Day if I could call him dad? :)) He just got his Christmas package! Full o goodies!
Kelly, I await your news now! Take good care of yourself, eh!!! xx Rita

hi dear Kelly, I will write a letter pretty soon, with a "heart" for your Valentine.:)
Friends are surely also Valentines. You are a very loyal and good friend of mine!-smile Well,I stopped seeing John,a Wild Life consulent.
His skin cancer returned and was highly aggressive!All his life he had carried it himself alone and he wouldn't burden me with it! He didn't know how long or how heavenly it would be on him, so we split. It was hard on me as I could put aside Georges death,knowing him. But I understood his reasoning,Kelly.Trough my dating site I met Jean, much younger than me, but my age number shows higher than I feel inside.He is a French talking Belgian/Marrocan. On the 12th of March we meet in Hasselt, half way of our homes. I will notice pretty fast if we are a good match. And I've all the credentials we are! He makes me laugh, and that's nice! He has a young character. Both daughters started a new job! No word from Leslie. And Elke will move to a new house. Lynn,8 will do her Springtime Celebration on April third.We then eat in a restaurant with the family.Their two children are not baptized, so they don't call it a communion.
Kelly I hope all is going well with you. Tell me what's going on in your life.:))
Lots of hugs are sent your way! xx Blessings and friendship.

hello dear Kelly,I got your card and your letter!I was glad to hear from you.:) In my letter I will explain what happened with Leslie.In a way we both pained each other.Lately I went dancing.Biodanza (originally from Chile), where Marita leads it,she gave a birthday party after our course.I got to know more people this way. Yesterday I arrived home very late!;with friends we went again dancing to The Netherlands.We don't speak, and dance barefoot. Actually our eyes and energy speak.One person shuts the eyes and let him lead by the other person. Or the person that is blindfolded leads the dance.Sometimes you lay on a matras and caress he person next to you. All on gorgeous music.Then another day I went to a dancing course named Sweat and tears.There you are integrated in the beginning and just dance on all those different music tunes.We pay 20 Euro for two hours of dancing.Bring our own water.Also I had a shamanistic course given by Greet (pronounced as Great).One lays on a matras,covered by a blanket and listen to a shaman (Greet) who makes all kind of sounds,musical instruments people in Peru use and such.In a certain way it's like a meditation.Some people fall asleep.It's really very relaxing!On my dating site there are many fake people!In fact,they use a photo,but are another individual behind it.:(I am sorry to hear people stole again!It's hard working in the kitchen,I guess?Yes,I'm still swimming as a polar bear.I did some floating in a cabin on salt water.On my B-Day that was.I went dining out with Ingrid.Today on Easter I went to mom in Brussels.We went dining out in a restaurant.No obliged masks in /stores/places, but still in trams and buses and trains.Thanks for your wishes,Kelly and have the necessary good energy to lead your life in a harmonious way. Your friend, Rita x
