"Because sending a letter is the next
 best thing to showing up personally 
at someone's door. Ink from your pen
 touches the stationary, your fingers
 touch the paper, your saliva seals the 
envelope, your scent graces the paper. 
Something tangible from your world travels
 through unknown machines & the hands 
of strangers, and it deposits itself in another's 
mailbox; their world. Your letter is then carried 
inside as an invited guest. The paper that 
was sitting on your desk, now sits on another's. 
The recipient handles the paper that you 
handled. Letters create a connection
 that modern and impersonal forms of 
communication will never replace."

And then her heart changed, 
or at least she understood it;
 the winter passed, 
and the sun shone upon her. 

now come home.
be here.
i miss you.
