Good news will be brought to you by mail.
A few hours later I was headed out to pick up some things, and when I checked the mail, there was an envelope from a friend overseas!

In the top corner of one side was a flap that said “open here”, in which she’d tucked a hand-written letter. So thoughtfully made. I’m looking forward to replying to her! We have been talking about the Artist’s Way, by Julia Cameron, and during her last visit to NY, we decided to stay in touch via real letters, written in long hand.

Thanks so much! It is wonderful to get something beautiful and unexpected in the mail.
