    I totally dig this idea, but . . . who writes the first letters you guys or us? (above says, you guys, however the email I got just said we write them.) What is the subject matter? Can we write about anything? I’m able to imagine this can be a lot cheaper than therapy or medication for some people today. Can we include photos of our cats? How about recipes for vegan cupcakes? There is actually a chance I may possibly have interesting things to write about. What is the statistical probability that the reader will care? Great idea! You are all great. Please advise.
