Since 1987 I have sent out an annual newsletter to friends and family. Between 1987 and 1999 they were all-text with no graphics, with the one exception of a map in the 1996 issue, so have included these all in one file. Starting in 2000, I included photos and they are listed separately. The early ones were simple and short items just mentioning activities of the family. By 1991, I tried to add some spiritual aspect to it and by 1994 I had an annual theme. See if you can pick out the theme of the year. Note the first and last word of the main body of the text starting in 1998.
"Gatherings" of my annual epistles where the later versions had a thoughtful theme of the year.
