Let's Make a Book

My current personal projects involve gathering stories, recordings, and photos for my kids. To this end, I would ask anyone who has known me, from childhood on, to help me make a book of stories for Lyla and Finn to have.  Stories are easy to visualize, talk about, and remember. Here is what to do: 

Write a letter to Lyla and Finn, who will read it at some later time. It can be any size paper, up to 8 1/2 by 11. Please tell them how you met me/know me, and share a typical or memorable situation we were in, specific experiences we had together from specific times and places, and/or one or more telling anecdotes. Close with your name and your contact information. The most important thing though, is to write and send the letter (or email, or audio CD) at your earliest convenience. Like right now. 

Please send ℅ Louisa Peartree. Get in touch if you need our mailing or email address.

P.S. For background/context if you need it: I am off the clinical trial and have made the difficult but liberating decision to forego further systemic (cancer) treatments. We are just managing symptoms and reversible things. Hence the focus on spending quality time with family, enjoying life to the fullest extent possible now, and as Mason Jennings says, "...let the future come/ Into each moment, like a rising sun."
