Part of the joy in sifting through archived papers of my family and my own, is coming upon treasures not seen for many years. I was delighted when I uncovered this letter written in calligraphy from Joan Baez. When I was about 11 or 12, my neighbor friend -- an older teenage girl named Eddie, had been studying calligraphy and was quite good at it. I asked her to help me write a short letter to Joan Baez who I admired so very much. Eddie did, we sent it off, and forgot about it. Then two month's later, this letter arrived with a simple "Thank You" penned in a beautiful hand and signed by Joan Baez. Awesome, right. I was thrilled then, and still am when I see it now.
