The Art of Writing Letters: Once Upon a Time

I used to write long letters filled with doodles, or photos and daily snippets. I would write over a period of days like a diary adding this or that or fancy that.  They would go out snail mail at least every couple of weeks. Those days are long gone. Nothing more unrewarding than never getting a response. After a while you have no clue if they're interested or care.  Email doesn't quite cut it or have that joyful anticipation of getting a letter in your hands.
Actually my Blog Title should be The Lost Art of Letter Writing. I love this description in the Washington Post article; " Emails are a poke, but letters are a caress...." and  something to be touched and treasured.

Nowadays I write here and share snippets and photos, albeit a little less personal, but hopefully people enjoy.

winter grey day in Ohio

Grey Ohio morning
Thunder Bolts
flashes of light
droplets trapped in the screen
 windows rattle 
 branches creak
 wind moans creep into the house
