Dear Margaret…

Tomorrow it will be 12 months since my mum passed away.

I needed to feel a sense of her today so I went digging for a pile of letters I had tucked away.

Letters that span 30 years from when I first left home to come and study journalism at Mitchell College in Bathurst.

It wasn’t the content of these letters that was important because most of them are just filled with the day to day stuff that make up a life.

What struck me was the power of pen on paper and how it feels so many years later to hold something in my hand that she’d held in hers.

There’s something very deliberate, very calming about the idea of sitting down at a table with pen and pad and taking the time to write a letter…

with such beautiful hand writing

and don’t even get me started on Dad’s…

You can say things in a letter that aren’t so easily spoken…

I love you too…and always will.
