The Lost Writings of the MVP of Team Steinkellner

2 Mar

She was a woman who triumphed in the writing of notes.  Not just bread and butter notes or notes to the Fed-ex dude telling him where to leave the packages. (Though, she wrote her fair share of those, too.)  No, mostly she wrote notes to her children and her husband… and the people who taught her children… and the gardener… and the pool guy… and the guy who was supposed to fix the pool heater some months ago… and the dozens or roofing companies who came to give wildly differing estimates and … well you get it.

Her notes were small masterpieces that would be worth small fortunes if they were dashed off Picassos.  They were succinct but bursting with information.  They gave excellent current advice with a few warnings of trouble later in the day.  The notes were as perky and positive as an article on dieting in a woman’s magazine. They were a lovely reflection of the insightful mind that created them.

But this author was such a total note writing professional that she didn’t stop at composing just as herself.  She also wrote notes as the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, little fairies that lived in Hawaii, other fairies that lived in rose garden just outside of her baby’s bedroom and I’m sure a bunch more.  But I don’t have time to  go into that now.  I just saw a three page note to me on the kitchen table.  And many items are underlined.

    Maybe that is where your son gets it. He wrote me the best cards when I was his teacher.
