Inspiration: Love of the Letter

Because I believe this post is so beautiful and inspirational, I thought I would share it with you all (plus this is an awesome site all the time).  {Click here} 

Perhaps why I love cards so much is my enduring fascination and adoration of correspondence.  I love the imagery and the meaning behind it.  I love the scrawl of a handwritten note or letter.  I will look at handwriting backwards against the light like some do a painting, marveling at the swoops, swirls and angles.  Valentine's Day may be the one time that most promotes the arcane use of pen and paper. 

If you have the chance or the inclination get out your supplies and make some handmade cards or notes because I know I am not the only one who is thrilled to receive such a thoughtful gift.
