I love snail mail. My mother is one of the few people who I still get mail from. Usually she writes letters about what’s happening at home and things she’s interested in, books she read or shows she’s watching. I love finding a pretty envelope with a quick note or long letter in it. Before her arthritis got really bad my grandmother and I use to write to one another. Now that she’s passed, I wish I had all of our old letters, but I don’t. What I do have is the great memory of all the times I opened my college mail box or got a crisp 20 dollar bill with the note: go to the movies or a package of oreos and a letter.
I came across Indie Fixx today and discovered there’s a pen pal google group. I promptly joined and amd hopeful that I get a pen pal (or 6!). It’s nice to know there are folks who have similar interests.
