The first card I drew from the deck is Deanna!  This is such a coincidence because I JUST saw her 3 days ago (the first time in months).  She drove all the way down from Washington to surprise me and my co workers.  She was one of my very first girls that I worked with at the Eating Disorder Clinic where I teach yoga and  do Art Therapy workshops.  I have though about her so much since she left, wondering how she was doing, if she still listened to the CDs I made her, if she was still doing yoga.  When she surprised me by her visit I started crying.  I wanted to write a letter to her to tell her how much it meant to me seeing her again.  Now I will. 

social loose ends

As far as new years resolutions go, I know what I am going to do.  I have a bunch of social loose ends.  Friends I have failed to communicate with, grandmas I need to update, people I failed to send Christmas cards to (everyone this year) Cousins who's weddings I missed, the list goes on and on.  And I painfully remember each person I have failed.  and it eats me up inside.  SO, 52 weeks in a year, 52 cards in a deck, 52 letters to write, BY HAND.  I am going to write the names of 52 people who need a letter on a playing card from a deck, shuffle the deck each week, and hand write and send that person a letter.  Trust me, this is something I have been NEEDING to do.  For some people for YEARS, maybe Decades.  There are probably more than 52 people even.  this is the hardest thing i have ever chosen for myself.  i just have to let go of the weight.
