20150724_201233When I was young, I remember a teacher telling us that if we had strong feelings about something, but did not want to be disrespectful, we should take out a pen and paper and write how we felt and what we would say to that person. She told us that she did it from time to time and it was liberating. She felt better afterward and was better able to cope with whatever the situation was.

Every now and then, I feel angst and frustration. harking back to that teacher’s advice, I submit to you some of the most open, candid and transparent writings I have ever done. My feelings, true as they are, expressed in The Open Letters.
