You may have heard that some bloggers are participating in The Month of Letters Challenge. It’s a very simple concept: participants promise to mail something (a letter, a postcard, a newspaper clipping, etc) every day that there is postal service. And they also promise to write back to everyone who writes to them.
I didn’t commit to this project myself but so far I have been the lucky recipient of 2 letters, one from Kathy and one from Margene. I cannot tell you how happy it made me to receive these little notes in the mail. Such a simple thing, really, but it made me feel loved and cherished to know that my friends took the time to sit down, select a note card and pen, and write to me. It doesn’t provide instant communication the way an email or facebook message does but I think that’s part of the charm.
And of course I have written back to both of them.
