What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?


Steinbeck and Monroe

This amazing bit of history came across my desk today, and I was so enchanted, I couldn’t resist sharing it as a special bonus Friday afternoon treat. It’s very simply a letter from John Steinbeck to Marilyn Monroe asking for a signed photo, the kind of letter I’m sure she received daily by the thousands. But there’s something so genuine and charming and disarming about it, I think it’s really going to stick with me. Now, whenever I think of Steinbeck, this letter will pop up in my memory and make me smile.

Happy Friday, all! (By the way, if you didn’t check out this morning’s post, go do that. It’s a helluva thing!)
