It’s a lovely-fantastic-super-amazing day in sunshine land… and the 4Fives are all rainbows and unicorns.
Last night, my dearest Jack sent the 4Fives the nicest letter imaginable- so nice, in fact, that I felt it necessary to repost it right here, on our little blog.
I think everyone can learn something from reading his wise words.
Much love, love, love!
Fivesy Foursies, and Foursie Fivesies!

I am in my house in Los Angeles. Sitting next to me is Baloo, the wonder dog. I have just had a very hot cup of tea that is making my very own belly warm and a general feeling of happiness is creeping all throughout my brain.
I wanted to write you this letter (these letters) to say thank you.
Thank you, 4Fives.
I have had an amazing time every time I came to visit you, and I think we can all agree that we learned a lot from each other. I will never forget you, and I promise to not only come and visit you every time I come to New York, but also that for the rest of our lives we can be friends. Did you hear that, 4Fives? Let us be friends for as long as we are able.
On the last day we spent together, we got to talk about possessions. Do you remember that?
I asked you what your most valuable possessions were. Some of you said money, or clothes, or gold, or cell phones.
I said that your most valuable possessions are the ones that cannot ever be taken away from you. So that means that the wonderful memories we created together are my most valuable possessions, for the memories make me smile, and no one can take them from me. Each one of you have taught me something in our time together, and each one of you wonderful 4Fives has given me the gift of an amazing memory.
Fill your brains with wonderful memories and helpful knowledge. Know that the world around you is a system made up of smaller systems. Learn how those systems work and you will be able to control them.
They say that knowledge is power, and that is true, but knowledge is also wealth, and that isn’t said enough.
If your brain is a rich place, filled with treasured knowledge and grand memories, then no one can steal away your happiness from you, and you will be rich beyond your wildest dreams.
Our time together has been to me like a palace filled with golden treasure.
I thank you for your friendship, and for the amazing memories.
In love and friendship,
