In the valley's back of beyond where I live there are mailbox's to delight the Postie's ride. Awaiting a letter with anticipation from a loved one is fast becoming a memory. We are a faster world with emails replacing and making the other, obsolete. As a country girl I grew up having to walk over a mile to the local postoffice to collect the post. What a joy to find a personal handwritten letter. They were kept, treasured and re-read. I had two Penpals, one in Japan named Hiroko and one in Texas named Mary. I still possess those letters... written so long ago.
And stamp collecting. We'd moon over the pages of beautiful designs from distant lands. Swapping and bargaining for the one sort-after was a thrill. Will that all soon become just a recollection from the past? ....probably!
So start keeping letters and you'll have a piece of history to pass on, when they are only a vague memory.
All photo's are original .....enjoy.

An Author since 2012 and retired Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our three little dogs. Monty (Australian Terrier,) Mille` (Toy Foxy), and Marley (Toy Poodle). Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11. Having personally experienced tough times I know, there is truely no gain without pain. South Western Sydney Area Health, Queensland Health, LATE OF ROGERSVILLE, TENESSEE and Amedysis Home Health.
