"I thought of you with such gratitude this morning. How can this simple exercise be so fulfilling and so satisfying? Words are bubbling up out of me like colorful balloons at a county fair. I've discovered an eager little writing voice who thrills to the challenge - I set my alarm, put pen to paper and sprint to the task, not giving myself more than a few seconds to contemplate the topic du jour. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
