To whom do you speak this?

Some people have an ideal reader. You can feel who they’re talking to. I read a novel recently that was definitively written to the author’s mother.
I’m not sure who these Hamlet writings I do here are for.
The audience changes every day.
Some days it feels like I’m writing to a friend.
Some days I’m arguing with a scholar.
Some days I’m talking to my family.
Some days – most days – it’s some unknown listener – some particular friend to whom I could explain it all at once.
