That first-day-of-school, clean slate feeling is definitely wasted on the young. It's grown-ups who can truly appreciate a fresh start now and again. What would you write on yours? I'd like to take a particular drawing class, master InDesign software, practice meditating, finish the book I started writing, read more. There's an online course on Modern Poets that looks great, some Thai recipes I want to cook, an autumn-colored scarf I want to knit. The sense of possibility that matters most and we never outgrow the need for it. Grow or die, a wise teacher once told me. Grow and live, I've learned. (image)
When is the last time you found a personal note peeking out of your mailbox? From someone who gathered paper, pen or laptop (and thoughts) and focused solely on dear, wonderful you? Well, there will always be correspondence to open here. Love letters from life, written just for you.
