In last week's mail, a tiger-striped envelope arrived, and I knew exactly who sent it. A fellow letter-writer and faithful USPS supporter who devises all sorts of interesting ways to send greetings. With a newly released book called It's a Tiger!, David LaRochelle sent the perfect card, decorated the envelope splendidly, and used the best possible stamp! I love getting real mail (not bills and unsolicited items), and I especially love rereading letters. My sweet mom writes weekly. My aunts frequently send notes. Some like-minded friends only correspond using hand-written mail. Passing on that tradition to younger writers is one of my goals for the coming school year.
