Letter no. 15: Ivan Speaks

Reblogged from Letters for Michael (http://wp.me/P1vp7U-1U). Coco authors this blog and it caught my attention. Coco encourages others to engage with his idea.

“In the beginning, a man is born in the mind: a figure without a soul. As time races and the heart ages, each day moments are remembered, thoughts are collected, letters are sent and eventually unfolded. In the end though, some questions are still left unanswered.”

Coco writes that this series of letters are about daily thoughts, life, love, and lots of it. The letters are about random ideas and encounters that may be real or fiction.
“His name is Michael, the man who the letters are for. Michael is a friend… an imaginary friend. You can be Michael.”

To be Michael you simply reply the most recent letter posted on Coco’s blog. Yesterday he kindly posted a letter I wrote when I decided to put myself in Michael’s shoes last week.

why not give it a go and be Michael someday?
