Dear Theo

my world in words


When I was studying music and life on Martha’s Vineyard, one of the directors opened my eyes to a huge collection of letters written by Vincent van Gogh to his brother, Theo.  Having poured over these letters in the years since, I’ve come to think that van Gogh was not just catching Theo up on the happenings of the day, but through the act of putting pen to paper, was trying to understand his world.

Perhaps the reason these letters to Theo have meant so much to me is this has always been the case in my life — never have I fully understood or appreciated the world I’ve experienced until I’ve stared at a blank page and let my mind wander, looking down later to see a page full of thoughts I’d have never found had I not allowed myself the space to find them.

In a way, this blog is simply intended to be the pages that I think friends, family, and wanderers might like to read.  It’s my world in words and if you’ve stopped by, I hope you enjoy it.
