I get letters. That's part of the deal; when you run a site like this, you get emails from all parts, from all kinds. I read them all; that's also part of the deal. I don't usually share them, but in this case, I'll make an exception. Andru Edwards, a guy I've never met, sent me a letter requesting that I post a link to a particular blog post. I'm honored - and saddened - to answer that request. Here's the link.
Reflection is not uncommon during the holidays. We look out our windows at the snow and lights and think of possibilities, of the world we'd like to see, of the ways we'd like to move through that world, of the way we'd like that world to see us. We'd all do well to strive for that particular and profound state of grace that George reached.
