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!
