Usual words. I've been using these words, all of them, for so many years. The London years. Talking, writing, thinking... And I still do. I was looking for something tonight, a specific english word, and in my search, I found a list. Of usual expressions. Usual words.

And just like that, I erased a few, I gathered them, and I had the most perfect, subtile, sybilline letter.

I wished I had written it from scratch. I wished I had sent a letter like this.

The perfect letter. Words and silences. The whole story.




As far as I'm concerned

as far as I know

as far as I remember

as if

as long as
