    Snail Mail

    I have never received mail from snails.  I've gotten mail from dogs before but never snails.  What do they write about?  I'm just curious.  It seems to me they would have a rather boring life, sliming around through people's gardens all night and sleeping...

    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...

    Strawberry Letter 23

    When I am old (and never gray because I will always be a faithful user of Dark and Lovely's "Midnight Black") I want to have a box of hand written letters from lovers and friends. There's something about pen and paper that is a lost art form in today's world of IM...

    I Love Letters

     It's been a while since I've gotten an actual letter in the mail.  I always loved it whenever I did get them or had an oppurtunity to send some out.  I used to get cutesy love letters from a girl who lived sort of far from me.  We were in the same state, but...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    is the most romantic and heartfelt thing a person could do. To know they sat down and took the time to handwrite you a letter just warms my heart. Whether its from a lover, a loved one or a best friend. It's still a sentimental thing for me which seems to be taken for grated...

    It seems to me that  'snail mail'  has a negative connotation to it.  Can't we use a positive perspective such as  'classic mail'. There is one important fact:  When you do every business transaction on a computer, you are adding to the unemployment...

    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.
