Noted: The First Time I Met Her

Noted: The First Time I Met Her

Dear Reader,

Can I just say how lovely it is to have you here today?

You look so Readery.


I make up words when I’m nervous.

Words just squeege out of me like Cheese Whiz.

I can’t believe you’re here.

I just have to show you something very special to me--

It’s the first note I ever got from my author.

Her name is Laura Aliese, and she means well.

I heard from the other books on the bookshelf

That she’s NEW.

Emerging, was the word they said.

Emerging from what I wonder?

My first words back to her note were, “Oh, YES INDEED.

Whatever you need.”

That was before the Big Shift.

I really don’t know what to do.

Could I talk to you about it


When I feel less unsure of My Existential Future?

When the words can come out more smoothser?

I’m really, really nervous,

But I know I’m not alone now.

You’re here,

And a Someone makes all the difference.

Thank you,
