One of my future projects, the preservation and celebration of the 70+ letters I have from my Grandma Arosemena. I also have letters from my MOM and DAD, all my brothers and sister and friends. I am going to figure out how to photograph or scan them and make a digital record for my niece and nephews so they can share with their children in years to come. My immediate idea, produce a short documentary movie and a coffee table book. I will keep you posted.
In years ahead the hand written letter will be an item of curiosity, something for ethnographers and anthropologist to study, document and learn from.
Today I am sharing part of an update I got from a friend who I worked with in California for many years. So much of what she shared spoke to my heart. She references letting go of the steering wheel of your mind; I love that line, I love the visual, the analogy, the poetry and power in that idea. In her update she shared her personal experience when she transitioned from a big job, at a big company, with big responsibilities.
For all us regardless of the circumstances when we go from years of a consistent activity, behavior, life routine to something radically different, there is adjustment, transition, discovery, surprises, lessons, frustrations, failures, and we all manage these times in our lives differently.
I appreciate the counsel, I appreciate the lessons learned, I appreciate all who've provided your stories, your perspectives, your challenges and opportunities, what has worked and how. What I value the most is your friendship and support in sharing LIFE.

The winds of grace are always blowing, but it is you that must raise your sails.
