It was lovely. I feel like I've discovered amazing new technology. Here are some of the best parts:
I used my fountain pen, and swirled my b's and the tips of my c's.Try it! You are a writer, and you can write a letter.
I used thick lavender card stock (couldn't find any stationery, but this cast-off from scrapbooking worked well).
I thought about my reader, and could focus on my friend rather than oodles of anonymous blog-readers. (No offense, folks!)
It felt quiet. It felt nourishing. Now I see why John Steinbeck would warm up to his novel-writing each day by penning a letter.
