Here’s a shot of my desk. It always puts me in a good mood just sitting here. I am writing letters on this beautiful Sunday and dusting off my art supplies. I just started a new job a month ago and haven’t made the time for letters and art recently. It always feels good to get back to them. They feel like home.
For those of you who, like me, adore Edward Gorey, be sure to check out the Google doodle today that commemorates his 88th birthday.
And since you’re here, you obviously like letters, so be sure to check out Floating Worlds: The Letters of Edward Gorey and Peter F. Neumeyer. The book includes many illustrated envelopes that Gorey sent Neumeyer. Delightful! My sister gave me the book a couple years ago and I am working my way through it slowly so as to draw out the joy.
A wonderfully inspiring video about radical openess and the power of ideas. Not snail mail related except for the fact that ideas spread by the written word gain power as they spread. Share some of your ideas with a pen friend today!
