Translations of Gratitude

This project began in the Fall of 2022 with a prompt I sent to a wide network of friends, colleagues, former teammates and old acquaintances. That prompt generated over 80 recorded voice notes, which eventually grew to reside on spore-site.com. In an effort to continue this open exchange and to share my gratitude, I composed a packet for each individual contributor to receive by mail. Alongside individually addressed letters, I enclosed a collection of terms, a referenced text from my bookshelf related to something the contributor shared, and a prompt that might evolve the conversation further. That evolution is still in process.
