As I approach 50, I’ve found myself thinking more about the importance of taking the time to thank people. In the coming year, my goal is the send at least 50 letters out to people who have helped shape who I’ve become. In each letter, I will try to thank each person for one or more specific things that he or she has done for me. For each person, I let them know that they do not have to answer, but if they do they can also choose and if and how they might like to participate. I will post no personal information, nothing private and no addresses without clear written permission, nor will I post the content of my letters unless it is also permitted. I will write about each person in a very general way as part of the chronicle.
If you read this and you enjoy it, then thank you as well.
