A billet doux to those who read my words, and to those whose words I subscribe to read. ❤️
Gorgeous post ❤️ I’m wowed already by the writing and community I’ve found here. The images are beautiful!
And, of course you also do linocut block prints! (I have supplies just waiting for me to use!)
I think we may be long lost twins. Or, I definitely want to be you when I grow up! 💛
Love this and your artwork! Going to have a go! 💜
❤️ Oh Rebecca, your sincerity just cut right through my cynicism about this holiday. Thanks!
Aw, this is sweet. Back atcha.
This is the best valentine I’ve gotten since elementary school! 💕
Very nice, Rebecca, but may I suggest a couple of small changes, ones to make this piece more like that of a 'proper' writer, ie one who, like Ziggy Stardust, makes love to their ego (cf https://terryfreedman.substack.com/p/a-writers-life-1)?
Well done for displaying such good taste and intelligence by reading my stuff.
I don't have time to waste on rubbish, so either keep up the (so far) good work or I'm gone.
Hope that helps 😁
I’m opening this again on Tuesday as it will be the best Valentine of the day! You’ve just made up for all those years I spent anxiously waiting at my desk with my shoebox plastered with glue and construction paper with a little slit cut in the top waiting for my classmates’ valentines. Would I get the pretty ones, the ugly ones that were clearly the bottom of the barrel..er package of 24 mass-produced cards with their tiny envelopes? Would I get any at all?
This Valentine is worth more than all those and more. Thanks, Rebecca. I ❤️ you, dear Writer.
Awww, Rebecca. What a kind thing to do! You are truly a sweetheart. ( You are MY sweetheart.) I send you love from California and a thank you for this lovely tribute. I felt like you were writing it just for me. ha ha ha
Rebecca! We love you. Sweet and beautiful post today. Thank you for showing up each Saturday and sharing your words here. It's a joy. Happy weekend.
A message of hope. Let's hope folks engage by commenting--changes my day every time that happens--and even better than a 💝. Even comped folks often only like when what we all need is the engagement you salute here. Well-said, Rebecca.
❤️ Love you right back!
What a wonderful post, Rebecca. I love the sentiment as well as the artwork. Your kind spirit radiates not just in this post, but in all of your posts and comments. I feel very fortunate to be able to read your newsletter every week as well as your comments on mine. Happy Valentine's Day Sweet ❣️
This is so lovely, Rebecca. I appreciate your writing so much. ❤️
