I love snail mail. (I think I might have said that before)
Talking about letters….the other day on the way to the park i found this page (don’t know if its from a letter or a journal)
“Women and Home
Lonelyness(sic) dearest had its pleasures.
An old strange book a birds bright wing.
A task complete – such simple treasures.
Now to our common hoard I bring.
The scent of rain, the leaves soft falling
In autumn nights; plain country fare,
A child’s swift question, or its calling
To some discovery to share.
My loves were such as need not fret you
Each incomplete, a jigsaw part;
These things I loved before I met you
Are yours now – given with my heart.
I love finding things like this- i felt like an explorer finding a relic.
I also love children’s art.
And like any proud mama I especially love my own son’s drawings, although the only thing he likes drawing is tractors:
But I don’t mind…
The other day my dear friend Karen combined the two! I received a lovely letter as well as this ‘painting’ which her daughter Kaylee did:
They do have rabbits, so I presume it’s a portrait of one of them?
On the side she quoted from one of my favorite books as well- Alice in Wonderland:
“There is a place like no place on Earth.
A land full of wonder, mystery and danger!
Some say to survive it you need to be as mad as a hatter. Which luckily I am”
