Your title drew me in and your opening sentence cinched the deal. This was a wonderfully thought out story.
Very creative, thanks.
What a great way to show a point of view! I like the idea of a box of letters.
I really like your recurring metaphor of depression as a garment. Perfect.

The first part of this story really engaged me with a real sense of "being there" with Diane...toward the end, it may have fizzled a bit, as the "showing" became "telling."

Finding those letters was definitely a gift, and I liked the way they touched Diane's heart.
Love the idea of the letters. I was drawn into the story and enjoyed the ending. Great job!
I too have felt touched by some long ago messenger who never could have known his/her reach into the future. I truly identified with this story, so very well done.
