    For The Love Of Mail

      Thoughts from my College Journal in 1995 Once a day, six days a week, we come together as one as we wait for the mail.  On the outside it appears that we have nothing in common. Some of us are in the Nursing Program and spend our days in labs, others...

    <3 Letters

    I love snail mail. I love writing letters. It's just so much more intimate, getting a letter in the mail rather than through e-mail or social media sites. I gained a lot of online friends when I first joined the Internet, and I wrote several. I even joined a pen pal website and...

    Good Old Snail Mail!

    Well, when your husband is deployed snail mail is about as good as it gets! I love taking letters and packages to the post office to be sent to him and it puts the thrill back into checking the mail box. I know that someone will be sending me their love in a letter not just bills...

    This Social Grace Lives On In My Book!

    I enjoy email and the web so don't get me wrong. It's just that I am sentimental and enjoy some old social graces like handwritten thank you notes. And although an email is nice to let me know you thought of my birthday, nothing touches my heart more than a funny card in...

    I love when the post comes and always hope that the postman has something (nice) for me. I love not knowing who the letter is from until you open it.

    I Love To Write Letters

    I love to write letters and send cards. In fact, I have lots of really great and unique stationary that I've collected from the various places I've been. There's something about taking the time to write a letter or card that means a lot. I loved getting cards and letters from...

    I love the thrill of going to the mail box and seeing that there is a letter or card in it. I love the feel and texture of the paper. The post marked stamp. The feel of the ink on the page. I love the pleasure of opening it. I always wait until I have the setting just right. I...

    It's Mail To Me Not Snail Mail :)

    It's 'real', it's tangible, it's enduring, it cozy, it's the thing for me! It's very comforting, and it stirs many many warm memories from the past when I corresponded with both of my grandmothers. Both of my grandmothers are not here any longer , at least not in the flesh. With...

    Poetic Penpals, Anyone?

    I would loove to have a snail mail penpal. I had one when I was younger but it kind of dwindled after a while. I express myself best through poetry so perhaps we could correspond that way? I think it could be intersting... P.S. not interseted in erotica.

    There's Nothing Better Than Getting A Letter In The Mail

    I have a friend who I met when I was about 6 or 7, but she moved less than a year later, so we kept writing to each other, but then we lost touch, but then I wrote to her again and now we keep writing each other letters, even though we both have facebooks. And now we're 15. And...

    Letters

    I love tor receive and send letters through snail mail! It's something that has become out-of-fashion, but I will always do it. I think it's a little more special than an email or a text message.

    Dusty Old Paper.

      To get a letter from somebody means so much more than getting an e-mail. You can draw things and decorate them; I often include a few tiny pebbles or shells from the nearby beach for my pen pal.   An e-mail can easily be lost through the closing of an account or some...
