As if I didn't have enough to do, I joined the Letter Writers Alliance ($3) and Postcrossing (free). I admit, though, that I was a little disappointed that my LWA membership kit was coming by...snail mail.

I sent off my first postcard today, to a woman named Minna in Finland. She listed "fashion" as one of the themes in the postcards she'd like to receive so I dug up a free postcard from Printemps ("spring"), the huge French department store, with an image of an avant-garde model.

My last huge letter-writing surge was when I was a Peace Corps volunteer. I wish I'd kept copies. Maybe some future biographer or offspring will track them all down. When I returned I was chatting with a friend who told me that while she was pregnant she was looking through her things she'd left at her parents' house, and started re-reading my letters from Cameroon. She said that one letter made her laugh so hard she felt the baby moving. I think it was when I was on a bush taxi somewhere and found a monkey arm under my seat.

Love to. Want to give me your address in a locked post? Or do you have an e-mail I can exchange details with you on?
