FOLKSY MAILBOX AND LETTERS
Could not resist taking a photo of this folksy mailbox along a county road -- someone with an artful eye and a good sense of delight painted this box. I am sure the mail carrier enjoys placing mail in it rather than the dark all one color boxes.
This reminds me about letter writing. Oh, I know it is almost out of fashion -- now that we use emails. Do you still write letters to relatives or friends? Letters, to me, seem touchingly personal.
I was reminded of this lately when I sat down and wrote a letter to an old friend in Michigan. She called me when she received it and told me she opened it by her road mailbox to read rather than wait to open it back at the house. She said it had been a long time since she had received a personal letter in the mail and that it made her day. Sometimes it's the little things that count.
