I had my first baby and started a blog. That was in 2005. Nine years later, I had my fourth baby and stopped my blog. I spent the next year taking care of that baby and writing handwritten letters. Every day from March 9, 2015, to March 8, 2016, I took what I could say to the masses and doled it out to one person at a time, one letter at a time. I didn’t want my Letter Project to end.
I still write some letters, but now I write about writing letters, about what I learned in the process and how I became more human. I have decided to merge my thoughts on letter-writing with my interest in quotes and my fascination with minutiae into one big unfinished letter called a blog. It is addressed to you, with love.
Our last month of story circles has included trail mix, raspberries stuffed with chocolate chips, popcorn and pretzels, and a Dove chocolate or two. Not all at once, just as we haven't discussed more than one topic at once.

The day I sat there for nine hours in the company of Rob, Jared, and Sue was the day I read an entire Taylor Swift biography magazine and almost all of Jenny Rosenstrach's new book How to Celebrate Everything.

I have a new strategy for journaling. "Ten minutes with a timer," it's called. Pretty self-explanatory, but don't let the simplicity fool you. It's some powerful stuff to actually begin to do what you've been wanting to do.
