“It is a surreal feeling, to compose a letter to an individual that you have no ties to but at the same time you want the whole wide world for them. I wished them a bright day. A day full oflaughter. I told them they were unique & special & really quite smashing. (I might not have used the word „smashing‟ but I probably will in the next letter).Really, we are not told enough, in a genuine noncommercial manner, how brilliant we are. How intriguing and wonderful we are. How much we should be commended for waking up today and deciding to take on thetask of being human. It is not an easy task. It is not always fun. But it is wildly worth it. Better that we write all these things down.”
