I guess the best way to write you a letter would be to put out a letter onto my blog and then pray you will read it.
I met a lovely man today in Ubud, Bali where I live who suggested I write you an open letter on my blog with a hashtag #anoprahmustreadstory.
Since my earliest memories I have heard voices and seen signs, since my earliest memories I have felt the need to rebel against constraints to live according to other people’s conventional expectations.
Todays meeting with this lovely man was a sign for me to write you a letter.
Oprah, I have written my memoir, which is recounted by my alter-ego Scarlett, my life has been five decades of adventure, intrigue, devastation, survival and miracles.
Oprah, this is a true story, this my story. My pray is for you to read my memoir, as I know you love a good book.
I am presently reading your book What I know for sure. There are so many inspirational paragraphs it is hard for me to pinpoint one favorite.
I guess if I had to choose one, it would be the story of The Brightness of Light about John Diaz who survived a plane crash on Singapore Airlines flight 006. 83 people perished in the inferno and 96 survived.
The two things that kept me thinking about this story after I read it was this.
- John’s instinct told him that the plane should not be taking off. He in fact asked airline staff several times if they where sure the airline was clear to take off because of the typhoon-like conditions that day.
- Although you asked John if he believed in divine Intervention and he replied that it was the position he was seated at on the plane and his quick thinking that saved his life, he did add,
“The inside of the plane looked like Dante’s Inferno, with people strapped to their seats, just burning. It seemed like an aura was leaving their bodies—some brighter than others … I thought the brightness and dimness of the auras were how one lives one’s life.”
Finally you asked John how this incredible scene effected his life he replied,
“I want to live my life so my aura, when it leaves, is very bright.”
I am thinking that we both have that in common Oprah, I also want to live my life so my aura, when it leaves, is very bright, just like yours.
Thank you for reading my letter Oprah, you can find my memoir Scarlett Voices In the Shadows on Amazon.
For my readers who have read my blog can you please share with the hashtag #anoprahmustreadstory.
