I wrote this letter to my friends in 2008 - Ron
It has been a while since I have had a meaningful conversation with many of you. That fact, combined with an email from a friend about the prevalence of small talk, put my brain in motion and the result is this letter. It is rather long and it took me hours to sort through my thoughts and collect them into something remotely coherent. With luck, this email will reach you at a good time and you will REALLY be able to read it. It might provoke thought and as such it will become a sort of time delayed discussion. Without luck, it will catch you when you are distracted and you will just skim the letter and move on to your next task. In either case, it will serve as a very long way of saying “Hello“.
