fan mail

i've had some happy moments and want to put them in writing ... so they'll last even after i forget them ..... and i've chosen here to write them ..... 

yesterday, i wrote an email to a friend .... who i had heard some good things about .... and though i loved him already, it made me appreciate him more ... so i told him .... it was kind of like fan mail... to someone who probably didn't expect fan mail from moi .... he wrote me back a very kind email ... 

then... whaddddaya know ... i got fan mail ... from someone i don't really know ... i know who she is and that she's lovely ... but we aren't more than acquaintances .... but she did some connect the dots and figured out that she taught my daughter, admired my art that some of her friends have, and that i was the teacher of a class she had been wanting to be brave enough to take .... all separate things that aren't really separate at all .... they were all me .... so ... i got the nicest email ... and sent back a lovely email ... and there you go ... 

i think YOU should write someone fan mail ... a pal, a kid, a relative, a teacher ... someone who wouldn't expect it .... it can be short ... just tell them you were thinking about them and how groovy they are (unless you don't use groovy as liberally as i do ... you can use your own favorite adjective)

happy day to you .... go make someone happy with just an email ....

Great idea, something if paid forward--imagine how many people will end up with such a warm fuzzy feeling at the end of the day?!
