Letters I never wrote

For years especially as a child I dictated letters in my head to people who really did something that meant a lot to me. Writers who I loved, musicians, artists,etc. I never actually sat down and wrote these thank you notes, but I meant to. As a child I was filled with this great sense of wonderment over certain things other people did and I wanted to thank them for it. I have always regretted not writing these letters.

Today, while driving in my car alone I was spacing out and I realized I was actually writing a letter in my head to someone I wanted to thank. I lamented the fact that I would never have the time to sit and actually write the letter and I realized. "Dummy! you have a blog, you don't have to write it and mail it out." (I am a lazy procrastinator that way.) "All you have to do is write it on your blog, send the link to whomever and the letter is done!" So there you have it, on days I am writing letters in my head of thanks. (or the occasional letter for anger) I will simply post here.

My first letter I would like to dedicate to Mr. Willie Nelson.

Dear Mr. Willie Nelson,

I am sure you hear this a lot, but I thought it was important for me to write to you. Your latest cd Songbird is so absolutely wonderful. It has moved me to tears many times over. Tears of joy.

I cannot stop listening to it. For a month straight I think I have listened to it everyday. The title song is my favorite. I think I listen to it at least 3-5 times per day. I can't stop. Hearing it, I fall in love with my husband all over again. Thank you a million times over for this beautiful song. Thank you for all the music you have played over the years.
