I've been both the sender and the recipient of beautiful, wonderful real mail this week, and you know, there's just nothing like it. Texts, emails, Tweets, Instagram messages ... all of that is fine and dandy, but when you go to the mailbox and a fun, colorful, envelope with the real handwriting (and in my case, wax stamps, fancy postage stamp, and whatever else I can find to gussy it up...) of someone you care about, it's just the best.
I was lamenting the fact that people just don't send real mail that often, and saying how it's all going to go away if we don't keep the tradition alive, all up on my soap box when I was walking down Abbot Kinney the other night, and saw this stencil on the ground in front of Urbanic.
Awesome. And you better believe that the very next morning, I did just that. Posted it, Venice, California!
Check your mailbox.
