Letter(s) to Hugh (USA)

Letter 1

Hi, King! It’s me Tanya again. I was very glad to receive your letter, I waited for it,

Thank you very much for telling me about yourself and your picture!! I liked it!!Hope, yuo will like mine!

I think now it’s time to tell you some words about myself.

As you already know, my name is Tatiana, or just Tanya. Vasilchenko Tatyana. I’m 18. I was born on July 1st, so I’m a Cancer by zodiac sign. I’m from Ukrainian town Stakhanow. May be I would give you my address laterwhen I know you better? Don't you think so? It’s a beautiful town, place where I was born, all my life passed here. A lot of happy and unhappy memories connect me with this city, so it’s the dearest place for me in this world.

I am a student. I study at a Pedagogical University, I am a would-be teacher. I now it is not very easy to be a teacher, it’s very challenging. Sometimes this work takes much time and demands great efforts and skills, but I l like being with children. Teaching them, helping them and taking care of them is a great pleasure for me!

When I have free time, I like to spend it with my friends. One day we can be very active- go for a picnic or to a club, and sometimes we just sit over a cup of tea, talking about everything. I also like to spend my free time alone doing some unimportant, ordinary but very pleasant things: watching some romantic movie or reading a good book lying under the soft blanket, or cooking something unusual and delicious, or just doing nothing but dreaming…

I used to live here with my parents, but a year ago they moved to another city in search of appropriate work, so now I’m living here alone. I’m the only child in the family and it has influenced my character in some way. I used to be loved and cared by my parents. I always got a lot of love and tenderness and gave it back to them. And now they are far from me, we meet seldom, and I miss them very much, their love and protection. But I think it’s not just a lack of parental love, I think I just miss love from a beloved, close person, a man. I want to love and take care of someone, and to receive all these feelings back! Of course I have a lot of friends; I like to spend time with them. They are very big support in my life and I value them very much, but they cannot substitute a beloved man.

May be that’s why I’m here in the Internet, searching for my destiny. You may say it’s not very serious to look for your love in the net; that serious, profound love cannot be found here, but I may object you. Love is such a thing that may encounter you everywhere. You remember that legend that once people were the whole one, a man and a woman in one face. And they were very happy, and gods envied them and separated in 2 halves. These halves were thrown all over the world, and since that time we have to look for our second half. And who knows where it may turn out to be. May be it is in the neighboring house or may be it lives somewhere across the ocean. So I have not yet found my love here. May be is so just because my half is not here, maybe he lives far away from me, and he is waiting for me as I’m waiting for him. May be it’s you, I don’t know. And when you find your true love the distance between you will stop to exist, it’s not an obstacle.

As for a man I want to find, I don’t have exact words how to describe him. Of course he must be frank, kind-hearted, loving and at the same time strong and reliable. He should be a man whom I’d want to fall asleep with every night and next to who awake every morning, and don’t want to leave his embraces. and as for the age, when a man and a woman like each other, understand and respect each other, have common interests, the age is of no difference for them. Besides, I am not interested in the "boys " of my age at all, we have nothing in common. I like when I can talk to a man about many different interesting things. You seem to be such a person. I am sure that I can be happy only with older, wiser and more experienced man. Older men are more serious, caring, they can give you more tenderness, love and understanding. They can share their life experience with a woman, enrich her inner world with their life values.

If you got interested in me and want to know me better, write me. If you want to know something else about me, ask me,

I’ll be glad to answer you. Send me more your pictures and write me about yourself, about your life, your likes and dislikes, dreams. I will be glad to hear from you.

And I hope that our correspondence will lead to meeting in reality one day, as i think it is impossible to get to know a person without real meeting. Do you agree with me?

Bye for now.

Smiles and kisses to you.

Tatyana.

Letter 2

Nice to see your reply for my letter darling! I was very, very, very glad to receive your letter. It made me smile and gave me some warm feelings. I don’t even know what it is, but I want to continue our correspondence.

I like your letter very much!!!! Thanks for your pictures!!!

You know I’m in some way cautious in relations with men I’m choosey about the man I’m going to date with, it takes me much time to trust in a man. To be close to a man I must be sure in him, know him, understand him, I must have limitless trust in him.

As I said before I am a would- teacher. And now we have a teaching practice. I have my practice at a boarding school. The children studying there are from problem, unhappy families. Almost all of them are unhappy children, abandoned by their parents. They are so little, but have already experienced so much sorrow in their lives; all of them miss love and care. I like to be a teacher and just a friend to children. And they are so grateful for your love; they have a lot that many adults can be taught from them. May be I’m alike them, because I also miss love and care in my life.

I think that writing letters is very romantic and interesting, it opens your soul. It is a wonderful occupation that is almost lost and forgotten in the 21st century. Sometimes in reality you are not able to express your thoughts as you can do in letters. My English is not perfect, but i am working hard on it every day. I realize that it is very important. I try to write my letters myself, but sometimes I use on-line translators. One more thing I want to mention, I don;t use any translation agencies, I will never ask your money for translations. All these translation agencies.Sorry, for my straight-forwardness, but I feel I need to mention it to you. I also try to learn French, but I am just a beginner in it. I know not much in French. But i hope i will master it one day I just adore horses! I think they are the most beautiful animals. I even rode it once! it was great! I want to learn to ride a horse, but I have no possibilities to do it. I like sea, but I live very far from it, I manage to go there once or twice a year for a week or two. But i would like to spend all my life at the sea side!! I like sports, fitness and swimming. i like nature and spending free time out doors, I like barbecues.

I want to share with you my view of family life. As for me family is the most important thing for a person, the main value in life. Age is of no importance for wife and husband, what is important- love, trust and respect for each other, the way of communication between people. When you are at home with your family the whole world stays outside. When everything is all right at home, when a person gets support at home, he can succeed in all fields of his life-work, society. Especially this concerns women.

A woman can be successful in life only when she realizes herself with her beloved man and family. Husband and wife should be equal, always try to help each other, have common views and interests. If I manage to find a man who I can trust, who’ll be my real second half, I’ll be everything for him- his close and best friend, soul-mate, his advisor, we’ll solve all problems together, I will be his loving and caring wife and passionate lover. I have so much unspent love and tenderness inside me that I urgently need a person to share all my emotions I shared with you my most cherished thoughts; I do this very seldom according to men. I’m seriously taking our communication, I hope so do you. If we are frank and serious, we may succeed in our relationship. I’d like to know your views. I want to know what you think about me. I’ve opened my heart to you; I hope you’ll do the same.

Waiting to your letter very, very, very much.

My warm hugs and kisses to you.
Tenderly yours Tanya.

Letter 3

Hi,My dear King !

I was very glad to see your wonderful letter to me today!!!! Your letter impressed me so much!!! Thanks for telling me so much information about yourself!! You are very interesting, educated, versatile person with excellent tastes for everything!!! You are outstanding!!!!!! I hope that I may be I could take the place of your special lady? You know, I feel I am getting closer an closer to you with every your letter to me.

Now I want to share my today's feelings with you. Today one of my childhood friends who lives far away from me sent me a letter, I haven't heard from him for so long, and he remembered about me, he told me about his life, he has now big problems with his health. But I am not going to burden you with that problems, but I just wanted to tell YOU about it. All his words provoked so many thoughts in my head, it is like I have been waken up, I was sitting and contemplating about my own life and about the life in general. We are always in a hurry, we are chasing some goals, some things, some material values, and forget about the people we have in our life. We forget to call our parents, to write sms to our friends, to visit them we have no time because of the work. and people may need you, but we are busy. what for all this money and welfare if we have lost ability to communicate, to be friends? And the life is not endless, one day it may turn out that we'll have no one to hurry to or to write. Things are nothing in our life, we must appreciate people surrounding us. I have many friends that are far away from me now, and we communicate seldom, but there was time when we meant a lot to each other, after that letter I understood, that I may lost them, may be have already lost. But now when it is not too late right now I will send them this letter. Couple of years ago I read A. St. Exupery, french writer and aviator, in his books he contemplates a lot about our life, friendship, about people we have in our life. I feel that I must reread his novels, I will do it tonight. so here is extract from his letter:

SAND AND STONE

TWO FRIENDS WERE WALKING
THROUGH THE DESERT.
DURING SOME POINT OF THE
JOURNEY, THEY HAD AN
ARGUMENT; AND ONE FRIEND
SLAPPED THE OTHER ONE
IN THE FACE.

THE ONE WHO GOT SLAPPED
WAS HURT, BUT WITHOUT
SAYING ANYTHING,
WROTE IN THE SAND:

TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.

THEY KEPT ON WALKING,
UNTIL THEY FOUND AN OASIS,
WHERE THEY DECIDED
TO TAKE A BATH

THE ONE WHO HAD BEEN
SLAPPED GOT STUCK IN THE
MIRE ! AND STARTED DROWNING,
BUT THE FRIEND SAVED HIM.

AFTER HE RECOVERED FROM
THE NEAR DROWNING,
HE WROTE ON A STONE:
'TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
SAVED MY LIFE '.

THE FRIEND WHO HAD SLAPPED
AND SAVED HIS BEST FRIEND
ASKED HIM, 'AFTER I HURT YOU,
YOU WROTE
IN THE SAND AND NOW,
YOU WRITE ON A STONE, WHY?'

THE FRIEND REPLIED
'WHEN SOMEONE HURTS US
WE SHOULD WRITE IT DOWN
IN SAND, WHERE WINDS OF
FORGIVENESS CAN ERASE IT AWAY.
BUT, WHEN SOMEONE DOES
SOMETHING GOOD FOR US,
WE MUST ENGRAVE IT IN STONE
WHERE NO WIND
CAN EVER ERASE IT.'

LEARN TO WRITE
YOUR HURTS IN
THE SAND AND TO
CARVE YOUR
BENEFITS IN STONE.

THEY SAY IT TAKES A
MINUTE TO FIND A SPECIAL
PERSON, AN HOUR TO
APPRECIATE THEM, A DAY
TO LOVE THEM, BUT THEN
AN ENTIRE LIFE
TO FORGET THEM.

SEND THIS TO
THE PEOPLE YOU'LL NEVER
FORGET.
I JUST DID.

IF YOU DON'T
SEND IT TO ANYONE,
IT MEANS YOU'RE IN A
HURRY AND THAT YOU'VE
FORGOTTEN YOUR FRIENDS.

TAKE THE TIME TO LIVE!

DO NOT VALUE THE THINGS
YOU HAVE IN YOUR LIFE, BUT VALUE
WHO YOU HAVE IN YOUR LIFE !
AND IF I
HAPPEN TO GET IT BACK,
THEN I KNOW MY PLACE IN YOUR LIFE.

I hope you are not bored with my letter, I just wanted to share my soul to you

Hope to hear from you

Tanya
