Tonight I felt a small shock of electricity as I held a handwritten note that John Steinbeck wrote to a friend in the 1960’s.  It was a moment of awe.  

I’m not sure why I was so moved, but it was a holy moment in my life.  

I guess it’s just meaningful to connect with the people who mean something to us.  Even if we never meet them.  

Once again, relationship proves to be at the heart of the universe.
