Week fourteen of the 52 Weeks, 52 Letters Project is upon us, and I just wrote up a letter to my friend Barbara who lives in Boston. She had been the recipient of a previous letter and made the mistake of reciprocating and thus became this week’s victim.
Barbara and I were part of the same social circle in high school through Young Judea, and spent the year afterwards in Israel together. We had completely lost touch until a couple years back, and it has been wonderful to have her back in my life. Two adults, sadly 3000 miles apart, but still with a close connection. I love you Barbara!
I think I’m finally getting in the groove of handwritten letters, as they no longer feels stiff and awkward to compose. Something I no longer have to force onto myself. (Although really, 2011 may have to be known at the year I realized that my handwriting was beyond redemption. It is so truly awful!)
Have you been sending letters for 2011? Please note that this is not a challenge that had to be started on January 1st, so please jump in at any time.
