I just love opening the mail box and seeing a letter or card. Its always a welcome surprise to a day and I set aside everything I'm doing to open this missive and read from beginning to end.
Staying in close touch with those I love, via 'snail' mail is one of my favorite things to do. Its so intimate -- just the two of us sharing our thoughts and dreams on paper. I know its a lost pastime these days but here's a special thank you to those who share this love of letters.
"And none will hear the postman's knock
Without a quickening of the heart.
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?"
W. H. Auden
