who are you?

How do you sign your letters?

Best,
Love,
Sincerely,
Yours Truly,

I have always ended my letters like this:







not sure who I copied this from years and years ago
the summer I was fifteen
my head most likely buried in library books
of some famous person to another
but I did and it has become more than a signature
it's my signature
like a familiar perfume pulling your head across a crowded room
or quirky fashion choices that reverb in tiny taverns

it's me.
who are you?

In the past few months I seem to have adopted Live, Love, laugh as mine and
often I use "always. Bobbi Janay".

I like that "as ever". It's lovely. I dislike "warm regards" immensely. Usually it's "best to you" and more lately it's "go with happiness" because I can't get that Swell Season song out of my head.

I like "always" or "as always."

But for family and friends I generally go with "love." People expect it - and really, you can never go wrong with love. Unless you're writing a thank you note after an interview of course. Then I'm "sincerely" all the way.

I've been neglectful in letter writing, mostly limiting them to my husband. I end love notes to him, "always and forever."

I adore "godspeed". I don't think I've ever used it but I wish I did. Then again, I also wish I actually still wrote things by hand. Perhaps it's time to get back to it.

godspeed =)
