January 11th Challenge: Stationary Saturday
Nope, it’s not about being a couch potato.
Today’s challenge is to write a letter to someone you love or admire. Not a text and not an email— a real letter on paper, written by hand and not computer. Stamp it and mail it.
Listen to this poem for inspiration: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/08/25/the-lost-art-of-letter-writing
This could be a long post about all the benefits of this challenge, but I’ve got a letter to get in the mail.
Thank you Hal, Larraine, Boog, Nina, Jill, Khalila and other friends for years of Good Snail Mail. I’m sorry I haven’t always kept up my end. But I’ve kept every one of those letters. They serve as a history and testament to our intertwined lives.
