Snail Mail

Spring and having all the windows open with the breeze ruffling my desk papers has me all kinds of nostalgic. I reached for my dusty box of stationary and wrote out several notes to loved ones. I even put stamps on them… and put them in the mailbox! *studio applause*
It took all my strength not to wax poetic in each of them, my heart full to bursting with love for the individual I was writing to while thinking back on all the letters and cards I’ve received over the years.
What is it about getting a hand-addressed envelope in the mail that makes you feel so giddy? It might be a birthday card, a simple thank you, a wedding invitation celebrating someone’s love, or a “Hey! What’s Up? NMHJC.” note from a bestie. All are special, and all travel physically from their hands to yours. What could be more intimate?
Do you love sending and receiving mail?

  1. There’s a group on Goodreads who exchange postcards each month. I have been exchanging postcards with those folks for the last one year now and I really like the anticipation of receiving the postcards as well as waiting for my postcards to reach the recipient.

    I love writing letters too. Unfortunately, haven’t been able to do so because of two reasons: a) most friends DO NOT WRITE BACK. :(( I know I shouldn’t feel too bad about this because their schedules are tough too, but hey, someone wrote to you. :((
    b) Life has been pretty busy for me too. And hence, I haven’t taken the initiative of sitting down and writing to a new bunch of friends either. Like I said, I know it’s tough but if someone were to write to me, I would *definitely* make the time to reply.
