A letter fro Anton Chekhov to his alcoholic brother. Whoah.....

I am getting my seminar handout ready for my upcoming pen show seminars in DC and Dallas and this came my way...

This letter just blew me away for many many reasons. I keep asking myself: does anybody write like this in written (e-mail, text, twee, etc) form these days???? Granted this IS Chekhov, but still....

I fell in love with the Keith Richards book "Life:Keith Richards" as the audio book version became my soundtrack for an entire Summer (22.5 hours!!!!!!). So here is a letter from the man himself. (My thanks to my lovely wife for netting this catch.)
He is called Mick Jagger

A Welcome to those visiting from Pen World!

Hello to all!

I have just received word that the June/July issue is out and about! Just so you know, this site is my blog on letter writing but I also have another site and other things spinning around the internal page.

My soon to be severely update website of my music, fiction, video work and the like is here.:

You can find my e-book, "Not the Yearbook You Expected", about my surreal life in Music, here.

if you wish to send me mail, my address is:
Michael Kovacs
PO Box 200
Old Bridge, NJ 08857

I do my best to try to respond to everyone at least in some way so you know I got your mail.

I have been super busy working on some wedding music and a new classical/spoken word piece due at the end of the month. I have ALSO been busy on an intense handout for the letter writing seminar at the DC Pen Show in August! I am going to be building on everything I have seen and talked about over the past year! It is going to be GOOD!

Take care everyone!
