A Letter

Dear Bloggers—

Greetings from my corner of the world! I know it has been a long time since I wrote, please forgive my delay. I have been having a crazy life recently with school, work, and that etcetera that we all have.

That etcetera that we don’t really want to publicly hang all over the internet…not that it’s bad, or embarrassing, or humiliating, or anything negative like that. In fact, there’s some wonderful stuff going on. But as you have probably figured out by now, I’m wary of the internet, and I just don’t want to write every detail up on here. I don’t even have a facebook, lololol…

So, this is me, in an old skool way, writing to you all. Let’s pretend this is a piece of paper. There’s a coffee stain on it, as well as a change in ink halfway through because my first pen died. The second type of ink is even nicer, though. The letter came in a heavy, green envelope. On the back is a”Get well Soon” sticker—an indicator of how rushed the endeavor was.

Warmest Regards,

  1. Dear Seph,

    How exciting it was to receive your letter today. I loved the green of the envelope. In fact, I held it in my hand without opening it for a while, just admiring that Spring-like colour. Are you well? It’s just that there was a “get well” sticker on the back and I wasn’t sure if it was meant for me – I’m quite well, thank you – or you?

    Anyway, hope life if treating you kindly. Write again soon.

    Warmest best wishes,
    ps. The ink in the lower half of the letter is gorgeous. Where can I get such a lovely pen?

      The get-well sticker was stuck on in haste. I’ve been so busy, I didn’t have time to look at the sticker I was applying. And the ink is from a Belgian ball-point pen…nothing special, but the thing has lasted me ages!

      Hope to write soon,


  2. Dear Seph,

    Your green envelope stood out among my stack of bills. I opened it right away (the bills can wait). I’m sorry to hear about the death of your first pen, but the strong finish of your letter is a good sign that your second pen is in fantastic health.

    I don’t do Facebook…or Twitter either. Just not enough to say 🙂

    Hope this letter finds you well.

    • Glad to know I’m more important that Bill, Janna. Lol 🙂 (can you use emoticons in hand-written letters?)

      High five for not being on FB!!! BTW, I suppose there are people out there who have Facebook or Twitter that have less to say than you, but still use it anyway. He he.


      • No kidding! Soon we’ll have so many people on facebook, we’ll have to have a social network for those people who don’t FB, just so we can still communicate.


  3. Dear Seph,
    it’s good to get a good ol’fashioned letter from time to time, my box is always empty lately! 😦
    You worry me, though, are you OK? I guess you won’t reply to my silly little game, then. Sniff.
    Don’t worry, I’ll get over it. I have Facebook, but I don’t update it daily, know what I mean? 😉 I use it to keep in touch with my friends around the world… although I guess I could go back to the lost form of pen-palling (did I make that up?)… but it’s sooooooooo XXth century! 😉
    Now I’m going to the post office with this little white enveloppe and hope the Italian mailing system doesn’t lose this on the way out (usually they lose incoming stuff, actually, so it’s a miracle I got your letter).
    Stay well and keep writing (and yeah, doing it offline is fine!)! 🙂

    • I’m doing swimmingly, don’t be worried at all. (What game?) Pen palling? Egh, how inconvenient!!! lol

      The Italian mailing system sounds like it has issues. Stick to e-mail.

      Warmest Regards

      • You’ve been tagged, you’re supposed to answer a few questions… but if you do not wish to break your privacy and rather not answer them, that’s fine! 😉 Like I said, it’s just a game, feel free to join or not! 😀
        I’m still waiting for my copy of Cinders mailed to me from the US a couple of weeks ago… sigh! And I’m not saying how long it takes to my Amazon orders to reach me!
        I’ll stick to e-mails for the rest… or blog comments! 🙂
