A nice surprise


When I checked the mail yesterday, I had a lovely surprise…this vintage postcard from my cousin Becky! I feel bad that I can’t reciprocate as they’re on the road, just finishing up in Taos.

The postcard continues a long-standing correspondence–when we were younger, we exchanged frequent letters. Becky saved all of them and sent me a huge envelope stuffed with all our letters a while back. While I’m too embarrassed to read them now, I know some day they’ll be great amusement. I love getting letters in the mail – there’s something sweetly exciting about it that email just can’t match. I like seeing people’s handwriting and feeling the texture of paper between my fingers.
