Letters of note

I have been reading Shaun's blog, "Letters of Note". I don't think his blog shouldn't be called a blog because the way he puts the collections of all sorts of letters from all over the world is just brilliant, not as a blog but a book.

I appreciate his idea of collecting beautiful letters. Letters he chooses are sometimes touching and leading my tears, inviting my laughs, and making me say, "thank you for introducing beautiful stories behind letters." Letters flew between lovers, between parents and children, between colleagues, between friends, between teachers and students, and between fans and celebrities.

Each letter is a good length to read on the way to work for me. He also runs "Lists of Note" with the same concept as "Letter of Note". I hope you will find it great.

P.S. My favorite screenwriter, Nora Ephron, passed away in June, 2012. Shaun also featured her in his "Lists of Note" about her last book when she mentioned about what she won't miss and what she will miss.

This post inspired me to write about what I won't miss and what I will miss:

What I won't miss:

  • humid summer
  • mosquito bites
  • heavy traffic
  • crowded train
  • insects in general
  • driving a car
  • exercise
  • internet
  • all sorts of technology

What I will miss

  • my mom
  • my siblings
  • my grandparents
  • my dog
  • ice cream
  • green tea
  • fall
  • winter
  • snow
  • book
  • smell of book
  • coffee
  • walking on the beach
  • walking in the park
  • watching the moon
  • walking with my dog
  • endless chat
  • cooking
  • laugh
  • fresh breeze
  • the person/the people i love

It seems I have more what I will miss than what I won't miss. What a finding.
