April is National Letter Writing month, and also the month of #write_on, which challenges people to write 30 letters in 30 days this month. This is the third year, and while sometimes it is hard to keep up, it's always gratifying. This year I've expanded from (mostly) writing people I know personally, to writing letters artists and leaders who inspire me, postcards to politicians who I'd like to give perspective to, and packets of personalized cards to vulnerable populations who need a little extra love (foster children and the elderly). The month isn't over yet and I'm still going strong!
When one of my residents from my college RA days contacted me that she wanted to commission me for a canvas, I was so excited to see what it was for. She's having a baby gal this month and wanted this powerful quote to hang above the crib.
The Denver, CO nursery came together beautifully, with hand painted mountains by The Color Lab. I'd be happy to have that room, and I'm sure their baby gal will be too.
This quote is paraphrased Goethe. But it reminds me to be my best self, even when the clock isn't running.
