my parents are in town visiting and they kindly hefted all my old childhood letters across the country. and when i say mine, i mean all the letters written to me by friends. about seventy percent of them are from one friend in particular - she moved away in grade three and we have written letters to each other since then. i was in her wedding last summer and she was my bridesmaid this past spring. ahhh, the power of snail mail huh?
i will be using most of these letters in an upcoming project from the fifty-two projects. the rest, i'll curl up and read. i can't wait to find out what we deemed important when we were ten...fifteen....twenty...twenty four...
below are some photographs of the most colourful ones in the bunch. clearly stickers were quite popular when i was younger! oh, and my favourite line from one of these letters?
"what's your email? we are getting the internet soon."
