Consider 'A Month of Letters'
Give someone else that special gift: participate in the Month of Letters in February.
It's simple, really. Just write one letter or postcard a day. To anyone. About anything. And pop it in the mail.
Don't worry, you don't have to be wordy, just thoughtful. Or funny. Or — well, you decide.
Stopby the stationery store (yes, they still have those!) and pick up a box of blank cards. Or stop by Target, or your favorite drug store. A sheet of notebook paper folded into an envelope will work as well. Be as fancy or simple as you want.
Yes, writing a letter on the computer counts: if you print it and mail it, of course.
Send your mom a fancy card or your dad a sheet of notebook paper. Or vice versa.
Meet someone new: start a correspondence with a new pen pal. Or get reacquainted with an old friend.
Make it special: write neatly and spell accurately. (No spell check on paper!)
So, you in? I hope so. E-mail me your address and I'll drop you a line. It will be fun!
