You Kan Change The World

It was around supper time on Valentine’s Day, when I opened my door to a folded heart stuck in one of my sneakers. I always take them off before coming in, serving as a handy mailbox.

It was from the little girl across the hall.

All of 5 cute as can be, I wrote about her as Emily Earheart.

This heart was perfectly made creased just right, so when it unfurled, well, let’s just say it was heartfelt.

I was sad on February 14th, missing my friend Liz who died three weeks ago. We always, for 30 years, exchanged cards so her absence left a hole I wasn’t quite prepared for.

I cried and cried, my aching heart needing a tender tutorial.

And it came by way of a 5 year-old mystic who knew much more than I.

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Thanks.

    Kids. They are so easily made joyful by the littlest things and inversely have the power to give so much by the smallest gesture. A tiny hand tucked into ours, a gentle hug, a paper heart.
    My three year old grandson has been bringing me love notes each time he comes. I keep my collection of heartfelt scribbles on the window sill by my breakfast chair. He changes the words as he rereads my notes to me, but the meaning is the same.
