what a wonderful feeling it is to grab the post only to find a special treat inside. that is what happened to me today. i saw a package in the post and assumed it was from my mom to my kids (i’ve been expecting a package from her) and to my surprise i noticed the ‘royal mail’ stamp on the package. i knew, at that moment, it was for me.
although we correspond on a regular basis, i still have yet to meet my dear friend from london. as i opened up the package i smiled….. it seems so odd that someone i have not yet met can know me so well. the card she sent had a beautiful photo of hers on the front, what a wonderful treasure. the book is an incredible photo book on the life work of nan goldin (i recently admired her work at the elles; pompidou exhibit). i am not only sincerely touched by this beautiful gift but am also touched by the fact that she knew me so well in the choice of book she sent. it was obvious she knows me well.
thank you my friend, this means the world to me.
