My Dearest Self

While catching up on the posts over at, I spotted a link to an article called Writing a Letter to Yourself. This piece celebrates writing to yourself in a time-capsule type of way—taking a picture of your life with words rather than a camera. I haven’t done that. If I write a letter to myself, it’s in an emotional way. I try to step outside myself and be the voice of reason that often times only outsiders can be. In any case, the article offers some great tips for writing to yourself—whatever your reason.
