Linda Perkins (WSC '90) Sends Love Around the World in 37 Bottles

There is something magical about a message in a bottle. A stranger writes a note and sends it off into the world not knowing where it will end up. While it has been the subject of numerous books, films, and songs, Linda Perkins is putting a new twist on it with her project called 37 Vibrations. Listen to our interview with Linda below and be sure to check out her website.

We were left with bottle #30 so be sure to follow its adventures. It has been handed off to Boaz Frankel (TSOA '04) and is on its way to Portland, Oregon.

LINDA PERKINS worked in film and television production for over a decade before realizing that she wanted to create and write her own stories. After taking courses in screenplay writing and children’s literature, she discovered Nancy Mellon’s two-year certification program, The Healing Art of Storytelling. 37 Vibrations is a melding of these different ways of telling a story. First hearing the chronicle of love, then writing it down to preserve the oral tale, and finally putting it into a hand-painted bottle to be passed along. Her hope is that these love stories will be an inspiration and create a ripple effect around the world.

Another of her collaborative efforts, The Amazing Adventures of Madebonne and Henry, can be read here.
