My Dad was a great planner, he planned every detail of his day and week and month and year. Reading his obituary I was in awe of all the things he had done in his life.

Yet all professional, scholastic and civic accomplishments they are forgotten, forgotten by public and his family, except for perhaps myself and your Grandmom.

What is remembered is what was unplanned, unwritten in the DayTimer and what was unrecorded on the official ledgers.

Rebecca,

Please do not take the LSATS. Law school people scare me and I don't like them. (Let's pretend Reese isn't one of them.)

You should definitely go into publishing. I think you would make a wonderful publisher. You definitely have the hair to pull off all the outfits that being a publisher entails. (This observation is doubtless due to the fact that, in your EXTENDED absence this week, I have been forced to watch HOURS of Sex & the City. Please don't make me do this again.)

Love,
Kate
