It was long. It was hard. I fell off the wagon more than once, but I am glad I made this resolution. I’ve made new letter friends (all about 30 years older than me) and have reacquainted myself with some old friends as well as the pen and the paper, rather than the computer and the keyboard. I love the stamps, the paper and envelopes and also pulling a letter out of the mailbox and curling up on the couch to read it. In 2009 I will try to write three letters per week. This was too much fun to give up after only one year.
My resolution for 2009? The infinitely easier and much less time consuming.”eat while sitting down.”
