Creative personal story
Letters are to some such insignificant things. They have been degraded to be merely filler for mailboxes. My mother has a peculiar affinity to letters that I suspect was the inspiration for a task she gave me- to write letters to myself so I could reflect on my actions from another point of view. She gave me a booklet (a measly thing that tore so much that by the end it was mostly duct tape) to jot down my thoughts....

UNIVERISTY OF RICHMOND Spiders are the lovable rogues that we should aspire to be.
