Dear Sara:

I’m glad you took the time to sit down and analyze your situation. You have had a hectic ten years but at the same time you have had a wonderful experience and will profit from it. It’s time to make a career change and I for one would like to see you take on the role of author.

With your talents, the most lucrative, productive and satisfying career would be to write novels. Start with one where you have a lot of experience. “He is a young free-lance photographer, affiliated with Magnum. He has obtained an assignment from your firm to do a photo shoot of Afghanistan by following the path of the previous Russian involvement there and why they failed. He has just ┬áreturned from there on September 10, 2001. He makes a date with you to give you a heads-up on some of the details and photos of the difficult terrain and hardships involved. You make a date to have lunch at Windows on the World at noon on Sept. 11, 2001.”

Take it from there and develop a  traumatic, compelling love story of these two young people.

As for myself I’m still hanging in there. I’m satisfied with my sons’ achievements and with my grandchildren. Each is special to me in their own way. It’s been a productive life. I feel fulfilled and ready for the final journey. I’m at peace with my journey through life.

And I Love You

Grandpa

Rest in Peace
