I am not at all certain that I will succeed, and immediately after signing up--panic set in. I've been mailing several letters a week, but one a day? OK--I could sent a lot of valentines, starting on Feb. 1. That would help, but that only takes care of the first of the month.
I'm going to ask for help. Send me your address, and sometime in February, I will send you something in the mail. At least one item in the mail each day (with the exception of Sundays and Presidents Day) is quite the test of my determination, but writing to one of you would make it easier because I know you through your blogs.
And maybe one of you will take up the challenge, visit A Month of Letters, and begin writing letters to friends, family, fellow bloggers, or even strangers.
Even if I don't meet my goal of a letter a day, I'm looking forward to trying.
We treasure those permanent artifacts, those bundles of letters found in shoe boxes or attics and seized upon with delight. Letters our parents exchanged, or those of our grandparents, or the letters of people we admire--how exciting to read them and get a personal glimpse at another time or place.
Most people today seldom have time to write letters that will be placed in the mailbox, handled by postal workers, canceled, and delivered to someone else's mail or post office box.
A Month of Letters offers an excuse!
I'm always good with excuses!
