Dear Robin,

A long time ago when I was a submarine pilot we would dive frequently off of Kailua-Kona, on the west coast of Hawaii. In the beginning the reef topography was confusing but I soon learned my way around. One thing I noticed after a while was that when I dove the world seemed to shift and I found my perception of compass headings on the reef never jibed with actual compass heading topside, on the surface. They were always about thirty degrees off. It took me a long time to finally merge reality with perception.

That is how I feel now as I write to confess that even though I read your bio way back in the beginning and even though there are hearts in your logo and and ‘e’ on the end of Hawke I had come to think of you as a man. Robin works both ways. Robin Hood, Robin Red Breast. I don’t know how it happened, but it did. Is that strange? It was only after ClaireMcA clued me in to the fact that she read some of my work after you pointed her in my direction that I looked again with more focus as ‘saw’ you again, this time reorienting my perception to reality. I’m not sure why I’m telling you this except that it feels natural to do so.

Thank you so much for nominating me for the blogger award. I am, for the first time, going to honor the intent and do my best to pay it forward now that I have seen how it can change things, small butterfly wings flapping wise.

I think of you now writing at your desk, every now and then stopping to pop out a three sentence story and then getting back to meatier projects, and I smile. It has been a pleasure, this beginning of correspondence and reading and I look forward to much more in the future.

Yours with Aloha,

Dear Doug,
I try and balance the male/female parts of my personality. I love that you thought I was male. I’ve seen myself referred to as male on other blogs and purposely don’t correct the notion. I can’t quite remember the context, but I remember certain cultures view a female male as the highest form of a mindful human; I aspire to a male female.

I look forward to the pleasures that are ours with as much warmth,

Robin…..I read through your works over the past week or so, but since they are so short I was able to view a great amount of them on my page. Problem, it was difficult for me to commet or like without having to close out and go back post per post from the main page. I’m a computer idiot in a lot of ways, but I would have added some comment if I could’ve easily gone to next or previous.
Loved the work though.

Good to know. I’ll look at the settings to see if there is an arrow I can add…I have a feeling there isn’t one with this theme. But I’ll check! Thanks!

Update: I didn’t see anything, but maybe someone else will know what settings to change.
