My thrifted $20 orange metal desk...
Loved it the minute I saw it..
Apron thrift girl had a pen pal swap which
I sat down this morning
with my first cup of coffee
the most important part of my day
to write this letter to karalea.
when I realized I don't think I
have written a letter by hand for 20 years.
I really think texting and computers have made this a
we are losing out on the fun of
going back and reading letters of our past.
My dad went to look at some property in remote part of Alaska
and in this old cabin since abandoned
years before left for the animals
in it were old letters
from the sister of the woman
who lived in this cabin with her
husband and children.
the sister was writing from Victoria ,BC
about her love life and how
she was hoping this young man was going to kiss her.
How sweet is that.
I would have loved to have read them all.
there they sat for some 60 years.
I wonder if they are still there.
and the young lady has I'm sure passed on
and little did she know that her sweet story
would be passed on by a stranger.
With technology we wont find beautiful letters
where I got to know her and her family.
with this lovely gift.
I'm off to mail her my hen scratch letter !!
