MY BOOK BEGINNING
I have spent the last few years collecting letters from complete strangers.-- The Things You Would Have Said: The Chance to Say What You Always Wanted Them to Know, edited by Jackie Hooper.
This is the book edition of the popular blog by the same name. It contains letters written by real people to others who have passed out of their lives -- parents, friends, enemies, their childhood selves, etc. The letters are incredible.
This has huge Mother's Day potential.
