Opening Doors

Vilhelm Hammershoi

“Be an opener of doors”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dear Parents:

I relish words. I like palatable words that roll off your tongue and linger on your lips such as piquant, exquisite, delectable and scrumptious.

I like contemplative words that create connections and challenge ideas such as ruminate, cogitate, elicit and kindle. 

I like elegant words that pirouette round a page luring you in such as beguiling, captivating, spellbinding and mesmerizing.

I like cosy words that invite you in and embrace you such as hospitable, solicitous, tender-hearted and benevolent. 

I like empathic words that lend an ear and a heart such as compassionate, kindhearted, tender and philanthropic.

Words open doors.  I hope to share my love for words with your child this year so they too can be an opener of doors.
