85/300: Write about the most recent gift you gave someone.

i’ve reached a point in my life where most of the people i know

have what they need

and the allure of gifts

for gifts sake

has faded

so now, if there’s anything i try to give with consistency

it’s words

maybe a card or a letter

because i don’t want the people i care about to move through life

without knowing

that their words and thoughts and hearts and minds

matter so much

to me

words are a reminder of value that can stick around

we all have notes that we keep in a closet

or a box under our bed

old cards, letters from an ex, a scrap of paper left from a friend

each one

a reminder of love

maybe that is, maybe that was

but love

nonetheless
