Correspondence

I have begun the process of setting down the foundation for what I hope to be a voluminous correspondence of physical letters between myself and several friends. If any of you would like to be included in this please comment or message me your address and you will be included in this project of mine.

I am undertaking this as a result of my desire and dedication both to improving my own penmanship, which is absolutely awful under any and all circumstances, and to anachronism. I really feel and, indeed, have always felt that letters, and the physical act of writing them, have more permanence and importance than a typical e-mail. They have more of a soul, on an individual level, more spiritual weight. This desire is also spurred a bit, I must admit, by my new and very nice fountain pen and my willingness to use it all the time for just about everything.

I do ask the following, however, of any who desire correspondence with me.: Don't fuck it up. Yes this will be fun and groovy in many respects but the last thing I want is for the weight of the thing to be entirely one sided. That is, I don't want my partners in this not to keep up their end of the writing. If you are to do this then do it and don't give me your address unless you intend to follow through.

I await your addresses,

Alex

Funny. I sent you one days before I even wrote this. I figured you'd be down with it. I think you'll get a kick out of how I addressed it to you, also.
In addition, I finally got around to sending your Christmas gift.
