Where the Postcards Are

Dear Everybody,

The knee surgery, which you can read about here, combined with a serious uptick in traffic and requests, has left me a little behind on your life stories. Please note that this delay does not in any way reflect a diminishment of my desire to write your life story. I'm going as fast as I can. So here's an update of sorts. Lonely, Micah, Blake, Gena, and Tim--yours are almost done and will go out this weekend. Jen, Sally, Elizabeth, and Kate--yours are coming after that. Timothy, Steve, Pat, Kate, Karen, Daniel, and Deborah--I'll try to give all of you calls in the next week or so. In the meantime, let's all live some more life. Then let's write about it.

Hope your recovery from knee surgery is quick.

I just wanted to say that I think your postcard idea is wonderful. As a personal historian I work more on books and video memoirs which take several months of work. Sometimes I wish I could do a postcard!

I have added you to my fav list in Technorati and will alert more people to your work in my blog.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks, Dan. I love writing these postcard life stories for people. Your job, the longer version of the life story, must be fascinating.
