    I want a penpal from somewhere else.

    I feel like writing a letter is such an intimidate thing now. So involved and time consuming. I like writing letters because it's a way for someone else to have something of.

    Hand written letters are a special

    and wondrous activity. It's about effort, careful thought, sincerity, truth and the simple and deep things in life. They connect people in ways other things couldn't. They bridge a gap that life creates from being easily distracted or overwhelmed by responsibilities and daily...

    Nick Nacks Round the World

    As I come home from a long day at work I stop by the mail box, wishing... wishing. I pull out my key and eye the little door. What treasures does this mail box hold? Is it full of the impersonal bills and ads that my paper shredder loves to chew? The kind I promptly dump into...

    The Joy of Letters

    I left several good dear friends behind when I moved away. One friend asked for a handwritten letter from me and so it began.  I realized how it made me feel to receive letters and started sending them to others. Now I get creative with my letters. It brings me joy knowing...

    Writing Letters Is Fun

    I have a stack of letters in a corner of my

    room hidden for you. Covered in scribbled out lines and my lazy script, bent at the corners from falling asleep while writing, but filled with loving words, that one day I hope you'll find and read <3

    A Fading Artform

    I, too, love writing letters. It's unfortunate that because of technology and other social changes, letter-writing is near obsolete. There's something romantic about receiving letters that were handwritten, plus there's so much more you can do with an actual paper letter than an...
