To you, who lived here.

Gerald ‘Jim’ Sullivan once lived here.

His former neighbors, now mine, told stories about Gerald J. Sullivan. They remembered him as neither completely sane nor crazy. In other words, that grey area a lot of us inhabit. As far as they know, he’s now homeless following eviction from my apartment. Although the eviction happened many years ago, he lingered around the property for some time. He approached the tenants and asked to be let into the courtyard until a restraining order was filed. Gerald J. Sullivan was a bit crazy but harmless, said the neighbors.

I only know Gerald J. Sullivan through these stories; and his mail. I know him mostly through his mail.
