It’s Time…

Den called Nadia.

“Nadia. It’s time.”

“Dood, I know.”

Dear Optimists has returned.  Like everyone, we are watching the news, talking to friends, and hearing stories…and if the world ever needed more optimism, it is now.

New content is right around the corner. For now, check out our past, remember us, and get ready for new reasons to smile…because right now, we all need to feel a little more optimistic.

Yours in Optimism,

Nadia & Den

EBooks? EBooks!

Dear Optimists,

I don’t love Kindle, Nook or anything else. For me, an English major, my love of the novel, the feel of the paper and turning of the page itself are all romantic in some way. Sure I love playing games on my iPad, and using programs on it, but I just can’t bring myself to read on one.

As much as I don’t love e-readers, I found one wonderful use for them. It’s easier to carry one around than a book when you’re reading a Stephen King novel. 😉


Love,
Den

Shadow Puppets

Dear Optimists,

Last week the gal and I were driving to a friend’s house for a little get together and the sun was setting, creating this really cool shadow of us in front of the car. I had to point it out to her.

“Look at how cool our shadow looks!”

As she looked I decided to wave. She giggled.

It’s the little things.

Love,

Den

Winners of the Skype Chat!

Dear Optimists,

Saturday Surprise! I was pretty surprised myself at how many people wanted to Skype with me! It’s nice that people think I’m interesting…I sure hope I can live up to the expectations. Maybe I should have a list of stuff to talk about just in case…

Anyway, I used an App similar to what Nadia did to generate random numbers. I decided I would allow two winners, but honestly, anyone else who really wanted to have a Skype chat with me can email me and I’ll do it…I’m a talker…I love chatting with people. Even those I don’t know. I end up talking to cashiers, waitresses and other people all of the time.

Anyway, the winners are Cafe 23 and Stacie Chadwick! But like I said, don’t be sad…contact me and we’ll figure out something.

Love,

Den

Painting? Painting!

Dear Optimists,

Have you ever painted a room?

I painted certain rooms in my house, just because they needed it. There were marks, nicks and old nail holes so I figured, why not. If you’ve never painted a room, you probably won’t understand, but after a fresh coat, a room just looks brand new and different. You find yourself wanting to hang out in there, enjoy the newness of the room.

So the fiancee and I have been hanging out a bit more in my dining room.

Love,
Den

DO is taking action – you should too!

Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Take action before it’s too late! Let them know how you feel by clicking the image!
