    All the characters in our lives. The familiars. The Classics. The ones we think we know...

    Beautiful, of course, but wait:

    The people who watch you from some far-off vantage point and just *know*. The letter that for years you've needed to read, arriving in your hands from who?

    A stranger? Yes, but this person knows you. This person knows you so well, in fact, that they know you're going to need MORE of this later.

    Attention, nay-sayers of the world! THIS IS REAL. Strangers sent gifts to each other--thoughtful gifts. They watched; they paid attention. This isn't mirth or magic--this is just what happens when people bring their best stuff to the table.

    And, to my Secret Santa: for making me feel known. I love it all, right down to your tiny, precise handwriting. Your heart came through in every single part of this gift, and I thank you.
