I’m trying to get my focus back here, so I moved the 30 days of letter writing to my Tumblr, which can be found at http://thepinkc.tumblr.com! See you there!

Dear Jesus,

Yeah, I’m writing you. I want to talk to you and find out if you really meant for us to be doing all of the things we are doing, if you ever intended on leaving Judaism and forming your own religion and more. What was life like back then? Do you know that we count time based on your death? Were you married? Did you look like me?

I really want to know the real Jesus – the person behind the stories, religion and myth. The man who has changed the world for better or worse.

This one was an easy one!

Dear A,

We don’t talk as much as we should. I remember a few years ago when we would stay up half the night talking, laughing, debating and just enjoying each others’ company. Then, life changed for both of us, and we don’t talk as much anymore. Now things have changed again, so maybe we’ll rekindle our friendship and pick things up where we left off!

I miss your constant questioning of “Why” and “How” and the sound of your laugh.

Love,
Ellie

Dear Barack Obama,

I would love to meet you because you have shown great resilience and a calm demeanor unseen in ages. I want to emulate your behavior the more I see you and hear about the things that you’re doing to improve America. I don’t always agree with your methods or the things you’re doing, but I admire you for sticking with your promises to yourself and country.

I’d love to talk with you about what it was like as a Senator versus President, how your family is faring in Washington and what goals you’d like to complete through the rest of your term.

Dear Google Reader,

Every morning I eagerly anticipate opening you and seeing what great information has been posted all over the internet while I’ve slept. With dozens of feeds and hundreds of posts daily, I can quickly get to the information I want, need and find interesting. You save me so much time and make it easier for me to keep abreast of my favorite topics – technology and urban planning. If you were a person, you’d be like Encyclopedia Brown!

Keep up the good work and I’ll see you later!

Ellie

Dear XXX,

I hope your life is going well. I never realized when you broke things off that it was for the best. I’ve gone on to do things I never imagined I’d do and live in the greatest city on Earth. Thank you for letting me go. I miss you sometimes, but it was the best decision you could have made.

Day 6 – Letter to a Stranger

Dear Lady in the Red Coat –

You do realize it is summer, right? Even during the heatwaves, I see you every day riding the M101 with your floor length red wool coat, hat, sunglasses and a dainty, yet worn patent leather pocketbook. You never speak. Nary a sound. You get on quietly and ride a few blocks to Morningside and sit on the bench feeding the pigeons.

I’ve seen you so many times over the last year, and I always see you just like that – silent, almost brooding and in your red coat. I always wonder what is beneath the coat – what is behind the sunglasses and wide brimmed hat. Are you widowed? Do you have family? And more insane, do you use an unlimited MetroCard?

I’m a little behind on letter writing, but I’m catching up quickly!

Dear future career –

You and I seem to be at odds. I want a job in my field, you seem to be as elusive as a ghost. We must come to some sort of understanding because frankly, I can’t keep doing what I’m doing and be happy. All I want is a job in my field that is fulfilling and helps me make a change in the world. Simple, right? So, let’s do this. I’m ready. I have the education, credentials and the willpower. Just waiting on you!
