One Year Later: The Exercise

Dear Kirsten…

Write a letter to yourself one year ago (yourself in Spring 2020 when the pandemic first really hit us).  What would you say to yourself about the year to follow? What turned out better or worse in the past year? Go into details (“you don’t know it yet, but”…and fill in the blanks). Think of Station Eleven and all that Kirsten could have told herself about the time to follow since the beginning. Share things with yourself that are moving, surprising, good, hard, etc. Email this exercise to me with the subject: One Year Later.
