What’s in your mailbox?

When I was a little girl I had lots of pen pals and I remember the joy of looking into our mailbox finding an envelope from one of them. A paper written a totally different place in this world. Stories of cultures, lives and personalities. It was like going on a new adventure every time.

Time passed. Life went as it usually does and now I sit here and I miss that feeling. I miss looking into my mailbox and seeing something interesting (other than bills and spam), finding yet another adventure.

I remember how I loved discovering other people’s handwriting. Getting e-mails can be all fine and dandy, but there’s something so special about seeing how someone else writes. It feels like a tiny window into someone else’s soul that one can look into.

In this digital word of ours I miss the touch and feel of a personal letter. A letter to hold and to keep not just put away in a folder on my Mac.

Sitting here missing that special feeling I’ve made up my mind.

From now on I will send one snail mail every month. To a friend, a family member or maybe even a stranger? Maybe to you?

If there are any one else out there who remembers this joy, misses it or maybe you’ve never had a pen friend before but always wanted one? Then maybe we could help each other out?

Send me an e-mail on christina@geek-heaven.com and join me in my Project Snail Mail πŸ™‚

Let’s go back in time… Together!

  1. Love this! I’d love a pen pal from a different country.
    Was wondering if I can include your words here in a book I’m working on called Fall in love with writing. It combines the words of over 150 bloggers as they share their love of writing and it aims to inspire people to write. There is a section on letter writing and would love to include you. Your name, age and country will be included or you can be anonymous. All good if you’re not interested. Just thought I’d check. Thanks heaps, JD.

      1. Yay, thanks so much!!! I’m so glad to include you. Love that header photo by the way. And will email you for the details.
