Monday Musings - The Handwritten Letter

artwork by Mark Powell

I used to love writing/receiving letters. However, in this digital age I have sorely neglected any form of handwritten correspondence. I am going to change that! I spent yesterday afternoon attending a presentation at the local library on letter writing. They've set up a 'station' where folks can use an array of pens, pencils, stationary, envelopes, etc. to write letters. A fabulous idea! Our presenter is a letter writer, and also raises carrier pigeons/doves that compete in races. Very interesting! Check out her blog here . This has led me to a few other great resources - The Letter Writer's Alliance , Ginny's Small Studio, United States Postal Service and the National Postal Museum.

Anyone interested in handwritten correspondence? I will gladly write a letter to you if you will respond! Send me an email and I'll give you my address!
