I am a huge proponent of letter writing. To see script fine and scribbled across sheets of paper at an angle with words of hope, wisdom, fear, joy, loss, success, and friendship enclosed within its realm from far away is a delight to behold, to retrieve from the mailbox, to read with a cup of tea, to savor and respond.
We were able to get our old post office box back. It was oddly comforting. To know we have returned to our place in the world, our community, our town, and are starting over with our old address is strangely affirming.
I first wrote about pen pals a few years back and still have a strong pen pal from that post (click here to read). I wrote again last year about customizing Christmas cards (here) and how a few personal words can transform the card into a real gift of the season. I invited folks to send me a card and I would reciprocate. Again, I have received beautiful letters and correspondence from around the world and some of my favorite friends I have not met in person but behind script.
So, I again write you looking for pen pals and Christmas cards and I will be ever so happy to write back. Here is my new/old address.
