I’m tidying my desk – how totally rock n roll is that! I’ve found this photo (taken at Reading Rock Festival with hangover in full effect) sent to me many years ago by Paul McEvoy, who is sadly no longer with us. On the back of the photo is a handwritten poem:
Another day, another year
I’ve seen you laugh and shed a tear
They say that time waits for no man
So have your fun while you still can
What’s done is done, don’t look around
Keep your hopes up high, your feet on the ground
But whatever the future might send
Don’t forget that you’re my best friend
Happy Birthday – love Paul
I’ve also found some wonderful coupons that Keira made for me last year, here is one of them.
It’s so easy to be in touch electronically that we sometimes forget the power of the personalised, handwritten note. I sometimes send people things in the post. Sketches, notes, little gifts, nothing major, just small things that are all part of the importance of keeping in touch. And often I’ll get an appreciative call from someone who has received something I’ve posted to them, and I’ll remember the power of personal.
I wonder if you can find the time to drop someone a hand written note in 2013?
Happy New Year.
