I am jazzed and honored by your scrutiny and how you've defined me by your words.

I treasure the memories that define our past; I delight in the moment we "found each other again;" and I anticipate many more times of sharing time to review life and build castles in the sky.

You are in a category reserved for only a very few with whom I can take the time to survey the landscape around us to comment, dream and judge; and know that our minds meet on the same point on that plane.

I don't usually call people out in my love letters - that's not my style. But this guy is a social media KING, so I don't think he'll mind; and I never offered up my thanks and gratitude for the insight and knowledge he offered...
I never said thank you - and I wanted to let you know that I am SO THANKFUL for our time together in a professional setting and for what you taught me in the moments that we shared together!

I want to say thank you for giving me a new title, a title that more appropriately described my role within the crazy-awesome world that I was trying to build parameters around. I was...nervous to carry that kind of a title; and bucked - just a little - the responsibility that it saddled on my shoulders. But you were right - operations was definitely my niche, my role, my calling. Thank you for giving me the name for what I did (what I do) and for having the confidence that I was already filling it.

I wish you success and prosperity in your new endeavors!
Know that I remember you fondly and with respect.

Be confident that I've owned it, that title, and wrestled it down. Like a bull - it's been grabbed by the horns, thrown down, slaughtered, sliced up and is cooking on the grill as we speak. The super awesome grill-out party is soon to follow.

I thought of you again...
I wish had I been ready for you-
I wish I had been more like the me I am now, then the me I was then.

And, even as I say that, I know that I am presently me because of you. Thank you for loving me and for unabashedly treating me with every bit of love and care in your heart. I wish I could tell you how much it meant, how big of an impact you've had in my life. Our time was so short and yet, I remember the challenge of desire - so fresh and sharp - keenly. Its aroma rolls over me and lingers.

If I could go back, I'd grab your face and kiss it - and you'd know how I feel.


This goes out to 2 women.
We were girls in 1997, well young ladies...
And, you both encouraged me to embrace the wild curls that were taking over my head; and I wasn't handling it well. I did everything I could that summer to reign them in, tie them down, headband them back....spray, gel, anything...

It took a while, but I listened and learned to love them.
I dubbed this summer the "crazy, Amazon hair summer," because they erupted and cascaded over my shoulders and down my back; and I had finally learned to accept and appreciate the genes that made it so-

Thank you for helping me learn to love myself.
I love you and your sweet encouragement to move beyond the typical.
