this post “LETTERS” originally was the only idea

the letter

Wolfgang Hermann comments (in German):

eine inzwischen veralterte form der mitteilung

dabei war es so spannend wenn man einen brief erhielt, nachsah von wem er kam, versuchte zu erraten was drinnen stand , den brief schließlich öffnete und ihn überflog und dann nochmals in ruhe durchlas

Please Mr. Postman look and see, if there’s a letter, a letter for me,
you got to wait a minute, check out if there’s a letter for me, please Mr. Postman …

    P.S.:
    mostly I like the aphorism:
    DON’T STUMBLE OVER SOMETHING
    BEHIND YOU (from Fred Babb?)

    I’ve written a lot about Thoreau,
    so I am pleased to find the quotation:

    GO CONFIDENTLY IN THE DIRECTION OF YOUR DREAMS.
    LIVE THE LIFE YOU’VE IMAGINED!

    My saying is if you put a postage stamp onto the letter or envelope we KNOW it will be delivered by our postman. Almost all other communication is not, guaranteed. Thanks for this because the postman is an era that is on the way out. I love snail mail, uncomfortably the world is going digital.
