Today I have written some postcards, got some first-rate mail, and lunch is on the stove. I’m excited about a new project where I’ve started a traveling journal at 1001 Journals. Please join and get in the queue for journal 1195, if you’re so moved. http://www.1001journals.com/ We went to Whole Foods for garlic, brown rice,… Read More »
