From the Author
What began as a husband’s effort to honor his late wife has become so much more.
In November 2015, to mark the anniversary of Catherine’s death, I planned to hand out 100 love notes with my children and afterwards take them both to an indoor water park.
The Charlotte news media―print and television―covered the story. Facebook and Twitter quickly spread awareness of the project, eventually sending it to the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. It wasn’t long before the story traveled around the world, and was translated into countless languages (several of which I still haven’t figured out).
Realizing that honoring Catherine could serve as inspiration for others provided a powerful motivation to turn 100 Love Notes, the project, into 100 Love Notes, the book.
I am transformed by this experience. How I think about love, its primacy, and how we share love to build a better community are new revelations brought on by life after Catherine.
The artists, as well, report being deeply touched by working on this project. It challenged them and changed them.
In the telling of a love story, the empathetic heart cannot endure unchanged.
My hope is that you will also be changed.(Hyong Yi)
