I now own four, chili stained- former- library books on the subject of calligraphy. LINK to the full story. Aw, well. Can't win them all.

On a more cheerful note, February is right around the corner and you know what that means! No? Well it is time for the 3rd annual, A Letter a Month event. It's pretty easy. All you do is write one letter to be mailed out everyday that the mail runs (so no Sunday letters).
I am the administrator for a pen pal group that is an extension of a Face Book group to which I belong. In the past, I have asked people f they wanted a letter to be sent to them. You may still do that if you wish. I also will be sending out a letter each day to some of the ladies on the pen pal writing list. There are more than enough addresses to enable me to send out a letter each day in the month of February.
I want to encourage you to find a way to participate in this fun activity. letter writing is diminishing daily but it is so good for your mind and it's such a delight to receive letters from those to whom I have written. Each year I get a bit better at what to say. Writing things out by hand enhances your memory, motor functions and helps to keep up a skill that not too long ago was essential. I remember the days before email, when letter writing and phone calls were the main ways of staying in touch with people, and I know many of you do too.
So, who's with me? Is anyone else out there ready for A Month of Letters?
