THIS IS TO BE A FAMOUS LETTER This is to be a famous letter. My life is deeply enmeshed in yours. You blossom in the corner of my mind and live there. The image laughs with me. We think with common attitudes. Like-minded, we absorb together the gist of life. Lovingly, we feed on the melody in music...

My walking time has dropped. A busy schedule forced cuts;  that's where the cuts were applied.  The daily average has dropped down to almost two miles a day. I've amended my exercise by hopping up onto the Stairmaster in the evening.  It does cause me to ooze with sweat in the way I...
