Dear Joe, How goes it? This is the second letter addressed to you, so you must now realise how special you are to us all up here. Maybe if you lived closer you’d get on my nerves like every one else does. But distance means I won’t get to find that out. Well, maybe I … More Day 16 — Someone that’s not in your state/country
Dear Dad, I’ve been sat here for an hour trying to think of someone else that I have missed, even remotely, so that I would not have to write another letter about you. I already tried writing about you on Day 11 and Day 12. That didn’t go so well, and these are the only … More Day 15 — The person you miss the most
WEAR SUNSCREEN If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience. I will dispense this advice now. Enjoy the power and beauty … More Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life.
Dear Jamie, I think last year was a difficult one for me with moving house, my Dad dying and other crappy little events.

You were my … More Day 14 — Someone you’ve drifted away from

See Day 11.
The latest of the 30 Day Letter Challenge letters gave me pause for thought and made me feel very uncomfortable. I wrote a letter to my Dad in 2007, just before Tom was born. In this letter I expressed my grief and rage at his treatment of me and my brothers, and also my fears … More Day 11 — A Deceased person you wish you could talk to
Dear J, Worried that I am writing this to you since we live together. What does it say about us if you’re the one person I think I should BUT what we talk about is not enough? and I suppose that is the crux of the issue here. Not that I don’t talk to you … More Day 10 — Someone you don’t talk to as much as you’d like to
[I’m really struggling to think of someone that I wish I could meet. I don’t need anyone else in my life than I have right now, and I don’t suffer from hero worship of ‘celebrity’. There is no-one that I can think of that I would like to meet, other than Bill Hicks (and he’s … More Day 9 — Someone you wish you could meet
