If you’re new, or have forgotten where I left off on my blog, then here is a re-cap: Back in April I partially participated in a blogging challenge with a thousand other bloggers, to write a blog each day in April, with the subject corresponding to a letter of the alphabet.
This one is about KNOWLEDGE.
My theme for this challenge was/is; “Letters to My Daughter”. She’s two now, and these blogs/letters will be compiled into a book at the end. Not a book I will publish, but a book that I hope will be read by my daughter Winslow. Whether she heeds any of my advice, is not really my goal. I ultimately want her to know how much I love her, and to give her some insight into who her father is (because life is fragile and short). … More Knowledge (Letters to My Daughter) #atozchallenge
