Letters To Me edited by Don Schmidt
than it could have been
should have been
if God in His mercy had not intervened
Hindsight is a gift
the present cannot hold
we can not know
what we will know
that pain will explode
roads will twist
feet will slip
aching to redirect
from our wiser positioning in time
desiring what is not
Letters To Me Conversations With A Younger Self edited by Don Schmidt, is a remarkable new volume, where nineteen writers reach back in time with letters to their themselves.
Their words will make you laugh, cry and recognize yourself between the lines, current, former and future versions. These are more than simple stories but reflections of lives fully lived. You will not be disappointed if you choose to go along for the ride. I suspect you may even find a pen in your hand, writing a letter of your own.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book to review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
