… a letter from my love

23 Jan

One of Aleksi’s greatest heroes is Meriwether Lewis (not only because they share the same birthday), and as I slowly make my way through Stephen E. Ambrose’s Undaunted Courage, we comment how wonderful it is that so much documentation from Lewis’ life (and the lives of other greats mentioned often in the book, like Thomas Jefferson) comes from both from his journals and from the letters he wrote to family, friends and colleagues.

As Aleksi prepared to leave for Finland we talked about writing letters to one another as a way to grow closer despite the distance between us.

For the first time since the New Year, I picked up Undaunted Courage last night; and, fittingly, Aleksi’s first letter to me (5 full pages, front-and-back!) arrived in the mail today. What a treat!Letter from my love
