This thoughtful and genuine email landed in my inbox and I feel truly inspired and reminded that one of the best things about blogging (and when I was doing my Washingtonian column) is the amazing people on the sidewalks of this city. Everyone has a story, a battle, an idea. I’ve met fascinating people over the years.
I am sure you do not remember me, but I met you on the street years ago, when you photographed me for this.
I am going through a divorce, and decided to blog about my new life, and I launched this week. It’s called www.hautemamainthecity.com. I mention you in my very first post, and I also have Project Beltway listed as one of my favorite sites. I love your blog, and I have been reading it all this time, and didn’t make the connection that it belonged to you.
Nonetheless, I just wanted to let you know that your article about me in the Washingtonian all those years ago inspired my blog. Thank you very much!
I hope all is well, and hope you will check out my blog and enjoy it!
