Letter-bats from Moldova

Letter-bats from Moldova

I have a blog reader from Moldova! Who knew?? Best of all, this blog reader sent me a very sweet letter that even included bat stickers and stories of bats.

I don't know from whence this stationery comes, but the mangled English phrase at the bottom is fun: "Investing the future has been man's favourite game of escape." Hmmm... thought-provoking.

Seriously, I had no idea people were reading my blog from such corners of the globe, and it was so exciting to receive this. Letter-writing really does unite people internationally, and I am touched.

  2. This is the sort of thing I mention when people say "the Internet killed handwritten letters." The Internet may have saved handwritten letters. Back in the 1980s I didn't know many people who still wrote letters. In the 1990s snail mail, even for me, had all but disappeared. But in the 21st century, I think the Internet is making handwritten correspondence quite the thing. A letter from Moldava, out of the blue, sent from a blog reader, is case in point.
