Last year, I jumped on the bandwagon and posted these little snippets to the universe. Don’t we all just have to put something out there sometimes?
Dear cancer – sorry for being blunt, but could you please f**k off? You’ve been bothering too many of my friends lately and I really don’t appreciate it.
Dear rain – we waited for you and welcome you, but please just bring a manageable amount to California this winter. We need you and are happy that you’re here, but we mostly want you as snow in the Sierras as a snowpack that will last into spring. Kthxbye.
Dear digital library – could you please not have ALL the books I have on hold become available at the same time? Awesome.
Dear creativity – nice to see you again. I’ve missed you.
Dear Universe – thank you for some good health news in my family. I am breathing a sigh of relief.
Dear November – it would be terrific if you could just take your sweet time. I am not quite ready for the holidays, which I love and anticipate, but I haven’t quite wrapped my mind around the fact that we’re 8 weeks away from 2018. That’s just crazy.
Dear fall – stay a while. It’s been lovely to have you around with sunshine and cooler temperatures. I’m looking forward to more fall runs and walks around the neighborhood.
Dear body – thank you for being healthy and strong. I appreciate that you haven’t given me too much trouble (just the occasional little ache or pain, which I can deal with). I am so happy that you enjoy our Sunday morning runs and that you’re willingly put up with my crazy schedule. I promise I try to treat you well this holiday season and not overeat on Christmas cookies.
Dear senators and representatives with a bit of common sense left – please do everything in your power to protect the people of America from this ridiculous administration. The last year has been so, so hard to watch and I am just so afraid of further damage that could be done to this country. Please put party politics aside and use your voice for the people that you represent. That is yourjob, and your only job, so do it right.
What letters would you like to put out into the universe today?!
