An Email From Clair

She's one of the beautiful flowers in the garden of my life. To Clair from Mickey



From Clair

Kim! I just wanted to reply to this garden update because well, I read all of the e-mails you send but as I was reading this one something in me grabbed at my heart and I don't know, I just realized how wonderful and beautiful and impacting your words are to me - always. All of your e-mails: I love reading them so much and getting just a small taste of what is going on in your life and in your mind and heart. So I wanted to reply to you and let you know. It's truely amazing how God works through people and seemingly small ordinary things such as e-mails.
Anyhow, I have been meaning to get in touch with you and Mickey. I miss you both dearly and think of you so very often. How has life been treating you both? Anything new and exciting? Are you planning any new trips to New York?! : )
I'd love to hear from you when you have the chance. Peace and Love, me

It is so good to hear from you - but we miss you so!
Your note to me was probably more uplifting than my note to you!. I have great respect for you, so if I manage to bring you even a small amount of enlightenment, that's a major event for me. I've been carrying the thoughts about Jack and the Beanstalk around with me for a couple of years and I finally managed to find an outlet for them. Sometime I'll have to tell you about Humpty Dumpty. Maybe I should do a series on children's literature.
We are planning a trip to NY around June 25th. I will stay a week and Mickey two. Is there a possibility of your visiting us there? We are flying this time so we can't drop by to see you.
Mickey and I have been watching "The Wire", the best TV series I have ever seen. It is about inner city Baltimore, its gangs, police, schools, politics, etc. I am interested in your opinion about the storyline, given your year in Philly.
I am also interested in hearing about your college plans. I suspect you will visit Indi shortly. Hope so.
Wishing you the best,
Kim
