Say it again now. No kidding, we need smart people who study things like dragonfly larva, the behaviour of house cats and relativity, we really do. I have a friend who is in the last deathly throws of her PhD on some kind of toxicology thingo (after 4 years of listening to her talk about it I am still not 100% on the details). She is holed-up writing furiously, her only friends are the kettle and a doona she pulls over her to keep the cold at bay. To cheer her up I am flooding her mail box with little letters. I have posted instant scratch-its, tiny bars of Lindt chocolate, print-outs of Kanye West tweets etc.
If you too would like to let a little love in, send me a letter and I will forward it on. Little drawings, love letters, bird feathers, tea bags ... anything you can fit into an envelope send my way. Getting things in the mail is always fun. If you like the idea of 'beautiful post' check out this blog for some inspiration. Now get writing! Post your letters to;
