Well! Good morning! I see blue sky! Lots of clouds, no rain. Hmmmmm. Got the coffee and mail! Two pen pal letters, one from Switzerland, one from California. Those will be fun! I especially savor Sean’s letters from Switzerland because he discuses some interesting topics! Like nature vs nurture, what it means to be male and female. He will put a new topic of interest in the letters. I love pen palling, have done it on and off over the years. Writing with a fountain pen, quill, or dip pen. There are some serious pen pal writers out there, and then there are some who like very simple letters and exchange recipes, etc. Not one of those, and there is nothing wrong with this. Pen paler let people know what they are interested in. Three categories I know of are long letters, short letters, and elegant letters. This last type is usually done with the fountain pen, quill or dip pen, special inks, and paper. It’s a well-written, well-thought-out paper. Something as well-written prose, with perfect grammar. This type of pen pal seems rare but interesting. It’s a lot of work to write like that unless you have done it forever I think. I was looking up pen pals sites one day and found this information. For a while pen palling seemed to be lost. There is a renewal in the interest now I think because of Covid. I learned of Penpalooza via my Poets and Writers Magazine. This is a website which has lots of pen pals but also you can give gifts to others but it is not necessary. So far some really nice people. Pen palling fits my day and how I spend my time. I admit lately it’s blogging that fills the day, writing a children’s book has been added, and the instruction manual, the more important goal.
Best wishes! On with the day! I am not ready for “Dance Monkey” and housework, not yet.
