Remember when we used to have things called "Pen Pals?" When I was in 6th grade, I had a pen pal who lived in England. I loved getting his letters, his handwriting was so pretty! And, there was something special about getting a letter in the mail.
Nowadays, the only thing I get in the mailbox is bills, bills, bills. Every blue moon, I get thank you cards, or wedding invites. I know it takes time, and .44 to write a letter. But, think of the joy you get when you have something in your mailbox; something that says, "I thought of you today and wanted to let you know; non electronically."
So,I have an idea, and I need your help. If you're interested in playing my game with me, all I need is your address. I will send you a postcard or letter so that you receive something handwritten and happy in your mailbox. If it does, indeed, make you happy, and if you feel inspired, then maybe you can send one back to me? And, if you know someone who would enjoy receiving a letter or postcard, send me their address as well. Just like Justin Timberlake, "I'm bringing letters back...."
I can even create a compilation of anything I receive and use it in a later blog post. (another positive side effect!) I need a project, and I'm kinda hankering for a way to spread some good juju.
If you want to play, you can leave your address in a comment, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
