I had a dream shortly before Mila was born.
In the dream, she was about 4 years old
and we were holding hands.
She called me Jenny Claire,
which is what my father often called me.
Now, Jenny Claire = grandmother
to all the grands.
I tried fusing fabric to cardstock.
It worked well, and I'll experiment some more.
The Blessing by James Wright is one of my favorite poems.
Wright stops by the side of the road to admire some ponies.
I included only the last lovely lines on the postcard.
Bryce Eleanor's drawing of a cat.
Since the pc is a cat,
I turned to T.S. Eliot's
wonderful cat poems from
Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats.
A letter to a stranger,
left in the library.
Night Journey by Theodore Roethke
This poem is so evocative of what it used to feel
like when riding a train.
:) And I included some book recommendations
for people who love epistolary novels.
I wonder if a library patron or a library worker
found this letter to a stranger...
To Bryce Eleanor
The next day, I used a copy of the cat again.
This time I wrote on both sides of the card!
To Murph's Stamps
an order for more stamps!
So far I've mailed 7 postcards or letters.
Still thinking 30/30 is daunting.
Letter Writing Month excused Sundays
and holidays, but no such benefit for Write-On.
