    Dear Anna,

    The digital world is a funny thing–and I’m not really a blog reader. I started seeing photos of you and posts on your wall via Kristine and Jer, and I think I may have been at one of John’s yoga classes with you the week before the Christmas holiday when i was in Virginia over break. Out of curiosity, I went to your facebook page and clicked on your website–and wound up, here.

    I admire your courage and your honesty and your mix of humorous and satiric with weighty blog posts about the things you are struggling with. I’ll leave it at that for now–mainly I just wanted to thank you for a touch of “real” in my morning, this morning.
