This is what you shall do:  love the earth and sun, and animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence towards people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown, or to any man or number of men, go freely with the powerful uneducated persons, and with the young, and mothers, of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life…dismiss whatever insults your soul.  –Walt Whitman

This is an illustrated letter that I made for Erin to remind her to keep writing.   Presently, she’d doing just that.  She will soon finish her MFA with a concentration in writing children’s stories. —TW
