Yesterday was a good day in regard to the post. Gone for a few days. A quick check of the mailbox and as the door creeps open I can see the first lines of handwriting. A good sign, always. Moments before I created my own addition. Postcards. Domestic this time. A random assortment of people. Just saying one-line “Hello’s.”

Tangible things. Most of these people are physical correspondence people only. No calls. Certainly no email or text. We don’t need much, but when we need it’s got to be something good. Not fancy, just good.

A letter filled with photos comes from Europe. Certainly the best photographs ever made. I’m sure of this. Certain. Positive. Stamps with a monkey. Strange characters. Colors and a fold. You make due with what you have. I break out the fountain pen. Add a few pages to the journal. The ink drops in a perfect black ball. With quick, violent breath it becomes something more.

  1. Not to sound like creepy stalker guy but, is there a way to get in the pen pal loop? Sharing physical prints by mail sounds like a great idea. You’ve mentioned it a few times in the past.
