Love Letter to Life 02.22.2021 Change Can Be Messy

Dear Life, I received an email on Saturday from my former husband acknowledging the “many glorious years” we shared. I’ve said about marriage and divorce that we had a good marriage until we didn’t. Then we moved on. The end was messy. Change usually is messy as emotions get a chiropractic adjustment into a new life. I learned to make it through the mess.

Love Letter to Life 02.20.2021 Dating Online?

Dear Life, Two years ago, Anne Lamott met her husband through OUR TIME, the online dating service for the mature audience. I was so inspired, I wrote a personal profile, added recent pictures, and jumped on the site fully expecting to meet mine. I am laughing while writing to you from my loft, living alone, and wondering, how does that work?!? and during COVID?!? Feeling like a teenager with Spring Fever.

Love Letter to Life 02.17.2021 Snow Painting

Dear Life, I am grateful to the author Gabrielle Glaser, American Baby: A Mother, a Child, and the Shadow History of Adoption. My daughter and I will be reading the book together as a way to understand the system that both helped when we were young but prevented us from meeting for over 30 years when we were adults.
Courage to come out of the shadows.
Yours Truly, Pamela Rose
