Waiting for the Postie

Daily Prompt: A Tale of Two Cities
If you could split your time evenly between two places, and two places only, 
which would these be?

We’re scattered across the globe, my siblings and I. Keeping in touch as most people do with electronic media. Yet, the authenticity of a handwritten letter, as rare as it is these days, is what makes our connection real. Laboriously written, decorated with lipstick kisses and doodles, coffee splatters and expletives; nothing compares to receiving a letter in my mailbox from the other end of the world in the handwriting of my beloved sister.

  1. It’s been a long time since I received a handwritten letter. Longer still since I’ve written one! I do have a former student who is an artist who illustrates his letters and envelopes so charmingly–as I imagine you do!!!

    • Writing a letter is a lost art Judy, but a precious tradition to reclaim. I love both writing and receiving handwritten mail. 🙂
