Letters Across The Miles


Dear Jennifer,

I am quite excited to be sharing this journey of "Old Fashioned Letter Writing" (online) with you ... It is a long lost personal touch that needs to be revisited. We live in a world of Tweets, IMs & text messages - Time to Get Back to Basics!

I wanted to touch upon your recent thoughts on "Perfection". I, too, find myself procrastinating over starting new projects. The fear I will not be able to finish what I start. My second thought is failing myself for not going the distance.

I was amazed with a few quick chats and we were out of the gate running with this new column - and new additions to our blogs, "Letters Across the Miles". I think this is the "Push" that we both needed to jump right in!

Funny, how you also mentioned how our grade school teachers would ask us to "Show Them Our Work" when it came to Math problems ...and weaving this theme into real life. Can you imagine making a list of trials along the way? Personally, If others showed "their work" in real life, we would live in a more understanding world. I believe it would be quite humbling for all of us.

To answer your question - What is sitting on my shelf that I have not started? I have a few poetry books to get through, mixed media projects to try, poetry to write, novels to read, magazines to thumb through, a few movies to watch, to name a few - and plenty of things to do around the house ... A few more hours in each day would be ideal, but until then - We do the best we can!

Wishing you a joyous new week ahead & Look forward to hearing back from you!



  1. I love this idea!!! And also the meaning behind "show me your work". I, too, remember this being written at the top of all my math tests! It is so true that we should "show our work" in life. I'm glad you are sharing yours with us! <3

    1. Hi Karen - Thank You SO much for stopping by - I so enjoy knowing that our posts speak to others - Just voicing our opinions, nothing more - But wanting a more peaceful place to live and grow! ox

  2. Love that you've taken the art of letter writing online . . . such a fun project.

    1. Thank You, Kathryn ... It was a collaboration between the two of us & we are thrilled that it is coming to life!

  3. This is great! And how true 'show your work' - - show each other our thought process to understand one another better. We have all benefited because you are showing US your works!

    1. Thanks, Renee - My Dear Sista - I appreciate your constant support with my writing, photography and creative ways! ox
