Oddly mystical, long skinny cloud across the sky at dawn.
These orange sunrises seem to coordinate with the 90% humidity and another hot day ahead.
Yesterday's mail was absolutely awesome! I didn't show you the fronts of these four letters because of the addresses...but these were the only pieces in my mailbox.
Four letters!! Whoohoo!
I don't think I have ever gotten four at once--ever!
And two of them were whoppers! :):)
What a delight to spend my afternoon sipping on coffee while slowly savoring the life stories of friends. Two of whom I have never actually met in "real life", but are just as dear to me. I pray we never lose the art of the handwritten letter!
It pains me to read that some of the kids today can't even read cursive. It's like a foreign art form to them. I suppose it's possible, but I find it hard to wrap my head around, that one day people will get sweetly nostalgic remembering the days of texting. Will they hold that short message in their hand on an ancient smart phone and imagine the person's fingertips on the screen? Will any of those millions of texts be saved?
If there was no electricity, no cell towers, no satellites...I am still able to write down my thoughts. And if I don't want to do it by hand...I have an old manual Underwood! ;)
Karma, who lives contentedly in the moment, could care less about saved thoughts in any form.
"That the birds of worry and care fly over your head, this you cannot change, but that they build nests in your hair, this you can prevent."
