Dear Editor,

While I do tend to ask you that question about the harm in people believing
in crystals, I also follow it up with some very specific talk about the
obvious caveats where health, money, and personal safety are concerned. The
point I am usually most concerned with is the intersection between positive
thinking and personal rituals/beliefs/artifacts. I want your readers to know
that this is a complex discussion we have. And that I'm not a total
wack-a-doo twirling about the backyard.

Not that there is anything wrong with twirling, it just isn't my thing.

Most sincerely,
Your Wife
