Home Stretch

In the last few weeks, I haven’t heard much from my pen pal, Sarah. She’s rather busy now that it’s the last month of school for her (hurray!) and she’s trying to find a job for after graduation. In our last correspondence, she told me there is much to do in these last few weeks! Projects in every class, preparing for graduation – it all seems to be a bit much. Now, I myself never went to college so I can only partly understand the college-grad-struggle, but I hope the best for her and all of her classmates.

Meanwhile, I’ve been searching high and low to find out who sent me that mysterious letter all those weeks ago. My investigation led me to a new neighbor, a man calling himself Zampano. I was startled when he said that and asked if he had any relation to the Zampano in House of Leaves. He denied every hearing of the novel, but I have my doubts about that. He also said he hasn’t the slightest clue who could have delivered the letter. The funniest thing is that Mr. Zampano moved in the same day I received that letter. I have a sneaking suspicion that this man knows more than he is letting on…

  1. Hello Elinor,
    I think there is definitely a good possibility that Zampano could be connected to that letter. He may not be the culprit, but its possible he was an accomplice. As for your pen pal, please let her know that her friend Clarisse wishes her the best of luck with her studies. At times when life becomes overwhelming, we need to open our eyes the most to the world around us, for peace can be found in the simple awareness of the world’s beauty. -Clarisse McClellan
