Dear Holden Caulfield
I’ve been writing letters since primary school. Many were never delivered but the simple act of putting pen to paper was often cathartic, challenging, insightful, therapeutic and more. When Cicerone Journal put out a call for its Living Letters project, I instantly knew who I wanted to write to. You can read my letter to Holden Caulfield here.
“A heartfelt personal reflection on time, isolation, and the changes in parent-child relationships framed by the challenges to emotional wellbeing that COVID-19 has forced us to consider.” That’s how the editors of Cicerone Journal described my essay, which you can read here.
