I chose inspirational quotes as the ‘theme’ for this wave of outgoing post. I bought this Page-A-Day calendar from eBay a few weeks ago, and the typography is so beautiful that I didn’t want to just throw the pages away when the day was over. I keep my favourites and I included a quote that I felt was relevant to my penpals in each piece of post.
I’m really enjoying writing letters. Along with this blog, it’s a great outlet for my love of words. My only frustration is not getting enough time to write, and for this reason my replies are often more delayed than I’d like. I suppose, though, that is a part of letter-writing – it’s not as immediate as digital communication. It takes time and concentration, unlike whizzing off an email or a Facebook message. I hope that the time I take to write makes for more interesting reading for my penpals.
