Who under the age of 30 these days knows firsthand what a pen pal is (as in: real pen, real paper?) Modern technology is groovy, she says in her best baby boomer voice, but I miss the art of sending, and especially receiving, hand written correspondence. Nothing but bills in the mailbox gets discouraging, but a hand written card brightens the day!!
So – write to me and I will write back. If we have interesting things to chat about, perhaps we’ll keep up the correspondence. Or I’ll connect you with someone who is interested in such. I’m especially looking for anyone who is feeling alone or discouraged – but really, anyone who wants to send/receive a note qualifies. Let’s get the world a bit more personally connected!!
There are just 2 rules.
1) Write on a card, note, scroll, napkin – it doesn’t matter as long as it is HAND written (unless you require adaptive equipment). Tell me about yourself, your hobbies, your hometown, a joke – anything really. Draw a picture. The sky is the limit.
2) Keep this family friendly, G rated, don’t write anything you wouldn’t show your grandmother. If you do, your note will be immediately tossed and you will have karmic spiders crawling in your bed for a week 🙂
PASS THIS ALONG TO ANYONE WHO MIGHT BE INTERESTED! THANK YOU

Greetings from warm and sunny south east Queensland Marianne, . .and thank you for leaving a comment for me over on Leaf and Twigs blog!
Having read your comment re “pen pal project” keep an eye out in approximately a fortnight’s time for a postcard from Woody Point. (I’ll see how much sunshine I can squeeze into a card;-)
Why thank ye kindly, Ms. Maureen. *Curtsies* 🙂 Will gladly take any sunshine you can send this way. Scroll down for my post on “50 shades” 🙂

It’s amazing how chance comments on one blog lead to following others.
