I just realized something and I hope I’m not late to the party here, but similar dates occur in 6 year intervals. July 9th was Saturday in 2016 and 2022. Same with July 21st and Thursday. Then there’s this part of the “Little Prince” excerpt: “And now, of course, it’s been six years already … I’ve never told this story yet.”
The passages we’ve uncovered still baffle me. Maybe they’ll make sense later, maybe they’re just extra flavor, or maybe they’re straight up red herrings. I can’t help but wonder if they are some of the mysteries EL claimed we failed to solve.
