This blog is dedicated to my incoming and outgoing mail and all things related to mail, mail art, postcards, pen paling, etc.

I wasn't sure that I wanted to participate in LetterMo this year, but at the last minute, meaning just now, I decided I would take on the challenge. What is LetterMo? Copied directly from the LetterMo website, following is the explanation.
I have a simple challenge for you.
In the month of February, mail at least one item through the post every day it runs. Write a postcard, a letter, send a picture, or a cutting from a newspaper, or a fabric swatch.
Write back to everyone who writes to you. This can count as one of your mailed items.
All you are committing to is to mail 23 items. Why 23? There are four Sundays and one US holiday. In fact, you might send more than 23 items. You might develop a correspondence that extends beyond the month.
Write love letters, thank yous, or simply notes to say that you miss an old friend. Send a fabric swatch from your new dress. A feather you picked up while on a walk. Whatever it is, let yourself step away from the urgency of modern life and think about an audience of one. Think of it as sending 23 little gifts. And, who knows, you might enjoy going to the mail box again.
Feeling intimidated? It’s fewer words than NaNoWriMo and I know how many of you do that. Join me in The Month of Letters Challenge.
Think you want to give it a try? It all starts tomorrow so go sign up at LetterMo.com. It'll make you stretch your cognitive muscles. ~JLR~
