On My Mind: The Light of Letters.

"And none will hear the postman's knock without a quickening of the heart. For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?" - W. H. Auden

This somewhat intimidating pile of letters is on my mind this Friday.

Now they are sorted I can start writing my replies, which can be quite a slow process considering I write all my mail by hand - Computers are for blogging, pens are for corresponding!

This is a Friday photo feature from Down to Earth that anyone with a blog can join. It opens the door to us sharing our lives through these photos and gives us all a new way to discover each other, and maybe form new friendships. Your photo should show something at home that you're thinking about TODAY.

To take part, all you have to do is post a photo, write a short caption explaining it, and link it back to Down to Earth. Please write a new post, don't link to an older one. When your photo is published, go to Down to Earth and add a comment , with a link to your blog photo.


  1. It most certainly is! Lol. :)
    ~S. xo

  2. Your picture makes me drool! :) My heart still quickens at the sound of the the mail truck though rarely does anything of significance arrive these days. Perhaps I need to send out more myself? :)

  3. I adore hand written letters. SO few people take the time to do that anymore.

  4. I could'nt agree more-I think it must be over 15 years since I recieved a hand written letter;its all email, text now and what a shame


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I really appreciate any suggestions, feedback and comments you may like to share, so please don't be afraid to leave them. It'd be wonderful to see you return again!
