The idea originated here: February Month of Mail.
When was the last time you got a letter in the mail? December sees a lot of mail and you remember that sense of delight when the first card arrives. You can have that more often.
I have a simple challenge for you.
In the month of February, mail at least one item through the post every day it runs. Write a postcard, a letter, send a picture, or a cutting from a newspaper, or a fabric swatch.
Write back to everyone who writes to you. This can count as one of your mailed items.
All you are committing to is to mail 24 items. Why 24? There are four Sundays and one US holiday. In fact, you might send more than 24 items. You might develop a correspondence that extends beyond the month. You might enjoy going to the mail box again.
Who is interested in getting snail mail from the Miaos? We promise not to include any buggies. Or mousies. Or dust bunnies. If you’d like Mail from the Miaos (and possibly a wallet photo of OMGsprocket!!), email me at miaochronicles [at] gmail [dot] com. I promise not to share your address or do anything with it other than send you a card or postcard and possibly a Miao photo.
If you want to participate too and send mail to other peeps, lauowolf is coordinating something here. It’s not just for Vox peeps – everyone is welcome to participate and your address will only be shared with peeps you approve. Go check it out!
