enter into correspondence…September 1, 2009
Doing a repeat chapter in The Artist’s Way, I was delighted to be directed to write 5 postcards to 5 friends… I ended up writing six! Firstly, it was so nice to go through a box of old postcards – some that had been sent to me, some that were bought to send and never were, and some that used to inspire me on a noticeboard…. These vintage Russian postcards I bought at Camberwell Market years ago and I haven’t looked at them for ages…. look at that lovely, flowing script….that is the beauty of letter writing (lost in emails…) I liked having the time to think about what I wanted to say, and the surprise the recipient would feel at receiving a ‘letter’…. our emails won’t be saved for our children to read in the future, but our letters might….
