I could not avoid my strong desire to let you know how very much I enjoyed your column “Little change in small-town life.” It stirred me and made me smile, keeping a fire lit in my internal conviction that these beautiful things still exist in our world.
It probably also captivated me with its references to Norman Rockwell, whose work always moves me. But just as significant was its ability to keep me reading. I have not had time for “the Sunday paper” in quite a while. So, to be able to take some quiet time to peruse the pages of that Sunday's Trib was rather exciting. (I obviously need to evaluate my life for some more areas of excitement!) Of course, there were many things I enjoyed about the paper and the opportunity to see new things, but none so much as everything about your writings and observations.
The column left me with a smile, a warmth, an encouragement of heart to not lose my own belief in all things good. To let you know the sincerity and depth of your effect on me, I have never written to anyone about what I have read in the paper — ever. But to allow my delight and joy go to unshared would have only left the desire irritating the back of my mind endlessly.
Thank you for taking the time to observe, to look and to see, and to share hope and encouragement with others.
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
