I’m going to try and write 365.
Yes, my 2012 Project is to write and mail one letter every day this year. That’s $160 in stamps. That’s, well, a lot of trips to the post office and lots of shopping at the Papyrus and Paper Source sales tables. And it’s a lot of texting friends and family for mailing addresses.
I’m very excited. For the idea, for the discipline, but mostly for what I think I’ll learn. About using words. About encouragement and slowing down and sitting down. About the values of correspondence, remembering, and being thought of. About seeing and thanking and appreciating and giving.
So here’s to seeing blue in the year Twenty-Twelve!
