I used to start the day by writing to myself on a diary page. Now I start by reading and replying to e-mails from family and friends across the country and around the world. This is a warmup act for the day's writing to follow, and a fine way to keep in touch.

Send your messages to: Joe@JoeHenderson.com. I can't promise a long reply, but I'll at least try to give a quick response.

Some letters deserve more than an audience of one. That correspondence appears here or in my newsletter Running Commentary. If you don't want your comments printed, please say so in your letter.
