Do you want to burn things, but you hate the smell of fire? Are you ready to scream from the rooftops, but you are cautious of heights? Wanna punch someone in the face, but you are a hand model who just can't risk a bruise?
Join me for a letter writing session this Sunday. So many things have happened this week that it seems pointless to call this Letters for Jordan, but that's tidier than "Letters for Jordan and all other children murdered by the state, oh and the mother murdered at a pool party, oh yeah plus our dying democracy, and a lot of other things."
We will come together to write letters that say whatever needs saying, to whomever needs to hear from you. Whether you need to send an angry letter to a politician, a heartbroken letter to a friend, an explanation to a child, a pledge of support to yourself, we will do it together. Let's take this rage, frustration, heartbreak, sorrow, and write it all down. When we finish, let us find hope, support, openings, foundations, love. I will provide water, paper, pens, and paint. Donations welcome.

Two careers ago, I consulted senior executives in periods of transition. One of the first things I would offer them was an opportunity to write a letter or script to explain what was happening in their lives. Letter writing is therapeutic and empowering, even if the letters don't get sent!
If you are have any suggestions, let me know!
