Letter #2

Letter writing topic for January 2, 2010:

As this is the season for "Auld Lang Syne" of "Old Long Since," write a letter today to an old teacher who influenced you in life. Maybe she was the elementary teacher who taught you to read or the high school teacher who made history come to life. Maybe he was the college professor who encouraged you to go to graduate school. Of course, it doesn't have to be a school teacher...consider writing to a yoga teacher or the life coach who helped you find a new career. Tell this person how he or she influenced your life and include some information about what you're doing now, what you're plans for the future are.

Alternative: Write to anyone who influenced your life, a next door neighbor, a former co-worker, the man who sells newspapers on the corner and greets you with a cheery "Good morning" every day, even though you don't buy a paper. Let them know what they mean to you.

Ah, Kimmy Kitten, this is quite an informal site! Just pick and choose as you go along! If you don't like a topic for any given day, or if it doesn't fit your life, look around and choose another letter writing topic! The hope is that everyone will rediscover the fun of letter writing!
