Often when writing email people reveal more of themselves than they would in conversation and letter writing. Erasure, an act that interrupts the stream of thought, is usually ignored and email messages create a candor which has become a hallmark of the medium. Paradoxically this is the least private of mediums so we can assume the immediacy of the medium is what drives this kind of writing.

I have received many emails which are extremely personal, some even containing very sensitive material from people I know would never pass on these kinds of thoughts in person.

This work, told with Linda's permission, interprets a dream she related to me in an email last November. The symbols, images and sequences used attempt to contact her expression of self and my immediate reaction. Much of the site is self loading, however all pages contain clickable links.
