Consider 'A Month of Letters'

Doesn't your heart beat a little faster and a smile creep onto your face when you find it? That letter in the mailbox addressed to you, it's like a gift with a stamp on it.

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!
