This person–let’s call her Cicely–sounded like someone whose special qualities were flagging in the face of multiple challenges.
As you can see, each letter kind of takes on a life of its own, what with varying added features. Hey, if this isn’t fun–whether it’s the writing or the embellishments–I’m probably not as inclined to stay involved.
Keeping up with my monthly challenge of eight letters, minimum.
There have been requests for cards, as well, so I’ll be digging into my page-a-day calendars and my photos to doll up those selections a bit.
Challenge for me: Just keeping an organized workspace to make the composition process seamless.
As you can tell by my occasional cross-outs, etc., I’m clearly working from the school of ‘better done than perfect’, but still, if I could remove additional distractions, that would make this an even more enjoyable project.
Sometimes my notes to elders turn into mini-pep talks and reminders we still have control over how are days are spent.
It’s quotes like today’s that help move the message forward. So if/when I’m at a loss for words, there is always a quote or a calendar page or a photo from my camera roll to add impact and/or insight that I generally lack.
A plug for Love for Our Elders. Tagline: We’re fighting loneliness with love, one letter at a time.
Am hoping the card spurs a little interest and action.
