“That is why we need travel.  If we don’t offer ourselves to the unknown, our senses dull.  Our world becomes small and we lose our sense of wonder.  Our eyes don’t lift to the horizon; our ears don’t hear the sounds around us.  The edge is off our experience, and we pass our days in a routine that is both comfortable and limiting.  We wake up one day and find that we have lost our dreams in order to protect our days. “- KN

Today we send to you a sudden, unplanned nap. Beside an open window. We send to you a bowl of ripe strawberries that stays that way until you are ready to eat it.  Add whipped cream.  A mirror that whispers “you are beautiful”. 

We send you the courage to believe it is true.  

We send to you special tape to hold it all together when you are lost.  Music that takes you back to overwhelming memories.  We send to you a deep breath.  In and out.  Daily prayers and the constancy of love. 

I send to you harder laughter and more tears. He sends you knowledge of your resilience and fortitude. We send to you brand new underwear. One outstanding piano serenade. We send you swing dancing on the front lawn. 

You make up the music.
