Part of the clean up involved going through old journals and letters. I used to be an avid letter writer, and I had a great correspondence with a few people over the years. I started writing letters as soon as I knew how to write. I loved stamps, and saved my money to buy more stationery. I was a weird kid.
I continued to write letters through college, and law school and well into the late 1990s when email was more common. There is a wonderful intimacy in reading about a friend's adventures in Panama, or a friend's excitement over a new love. I miss my pen pals!
So I was excited to see this challenge: Write a Letter a Day in February. (Perfectly timed for Valentine's Day!) I'm going to take the challenge. How about you?
Oh, and if you'd like to send me a letter, you can find my address on my website contact page!
