A letter to the blank page

I took Jen Lee with me on the train today and at her gentle urging, I wrote a letter to the blank page. I told her, the page not Jen, that I saw past her pristine, perfect beauty. I may have been intimidated by her in the past but now I understood that even in her perfection she could
never make anyone smile or laugh or gasp in recognition the way that words could, even my imperfect words. I think she got the
point.

Do you think you could do with a long chat with Jen about writing? You can take her with you too. I highly recommend it.
