An open letter to e-mail broadcasters everywhere

I would love to hear from you once in a while but I have an allergy. I am allergic to forwarded e-mails. No matter how lovely the poem, how profound the sentiment, how cute the picture, how urgent the plea…every forwarded e-mail gives me hives and indigestion. They are just too easy and just a little too much like a chain letter.

The only e-mails that don’t make me queasy are original and written from the heart. I like meeting and knowing original people. Do please keep in touch, but if you do write me, let it be something you want to say.

Your ever friend,
