Today, for the 20th day of February, I sent three pieces of mail for the Month of Letters challenge. All three were Postcrossing cards, two to Germany and one to the U.S. To Anklam, Germany, an atmospheric evening shot of Jackson Square in New Orleans. The Postcrosser there, a 28-year-old named Lydia, loves New OrleansContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 20”
I managed to send only one piece of mail today. It was a postcard to a Postcrosser in Los Angeles. But at least it was a pretty one, a field of lupines by the water at Turnagain Arm, Alaska, a little south of Anchorage. The gorgeous blues and purples and the luminosity of the waterContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 19”
For February 18, I sent just one letter in the Month of Letters challenge, but it had MailArt! I wrote a letter to a new LetterMo Friend, a correspondent in Colorado. She said she enjoys MailArt and does quite a bit of it herself — a whole lot more than I do. So I decidedContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 18”
On Saturday, Feb. 15, I mailed a Postcrossing card to Steyer, Germany. Steyer is along the Rhine River, a little south of Mannheim. The card showed an illustration (below) of historic sites in the Charlottesville, Virginia, area. Days 16 and 17 were easy. Feb. 16 was Sunday, and the following day was the George WashingtonContinue reading “Month of Letters, Days 15, 16, and 17”
This morning I drove my son to school, which put me just a block from one of my favorite neighborhood cafes. Naturally, I stopped in for breakfast, bringing with me a blank card, a box of stationery (for subsequent pages), and the address of a pen pal in Massachusetts. It’s a good thing I hadContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 14”
Today was a slow day for letter-writing, nearly halfway through the Month of Letters. I wrote and mailed just one Postcrossing postcard. The photo shows a “Virginia Is For Lovers” highway sign, and the card went to a Postcrosser in Kansas City, Kansas.
Just one piece of mail went out today in my Month of Letters (or “LetterMo”) challenge. It was a Valentine’s Day card and letter, sent to a LetterMo participant and occasional pen pal in Florida. I don’t have an image of this one. So a generic heart will have to do.
It is Tuesday, February 11, also known as the eleventh day of the Month of Letters challenge (fondly known as “LetterMo.” Today I sent three cards and letters: A Valentine’s Day card to my mother in Williamsburg, Virginia. A Get Well Soon card to my father in California. A birthday card and letter to myContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 11”
On Monday, February 10, the tenth day of the Month of Letters challenge to send at least one piece of mail each day in February, I sent two Postcrossing cards: To China, a superhero robot card. To The Netherlands, a card with a reproduction of the cover of an old pulp fiction book called Musk,Continue reading “Month of Letters, Day 10”
On Saturday, February 8, I mailed just one letter for the LetterMo (Month of Letters) challenge. This one was a letter sent to another LetterMo participant, this one in Pennsylvania. I was traveling (on yet another college visit) and sent it from a hotel mailbox in Harrisonburg, Virginia. No breathtaking scenes, clever pictures, or quirkyContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 8 (and Day 9)”
