An Open Letter to “Elise”

Dearest Elise:

You may find difficulty in knowing a long embrace. It might be that you never know the right words, while the person next to you mirrors Shakespeare.

You may observe Homo Sapiens in their natural habitat, taking meticulous notes, and coming upon a hypothesis.

You see a dance of life in progress, but you have no understanding of what steps and in what rhythm it takes.  The ball and its pageantry being the most beautiful concept. A congress most splendid.

For you to join our dance, it will take some time to study. You must learn what you do well. You must then learn what someone else needs. It will take asking those close to you for tips that others know easily. You will have to learn to love others more than yourself.

The curse of being well read gave me a few things that can start you in the right direction:

Booker T Washington told us that “those that are happiest are those who do the most for others”.

George Sand had said that “there is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved”.

Elise, to have love in your life, love another more than yourself. It took me years to learn. I hurt a few along the way with my ignorance.

I hope that this letter finds you well.

Your Friend
