Dear Younger self,
I know you think you’re getting old and may never finish or publish your books, but I have some great news for you! Your health efforts have paid off in spades and I feel better at almost 73 than you did at almost 68. I am vibrant and healthy and amazingly energetic and lean. No one believes I’m 73. No, I don’t look twenty, and never will again. But we’re a rocking 72 and 11/12ths! J
And I have more good news. Your ADHD and other issues have reconciled themselves to the point where you have completed several of your novels, including Frog Haven, and two are published and one will be soon and another is getting close to ready. Not only that, but you’ve had a chapbook and poetry book published and a novella! You had so many close to being ready that putting effort into them one at a time did the trick.
Love, your happy, healthy older self!
