... A little.

I posted a fair few letters during the month of December but have only received one reply. I take this as a good sign as I often worry that my letters don't reach their destinations due to several factors, all involving Poste Italiane. But also a bad sign... an empty mailbox makes me sad.

Again, my lack of pictures kicks me in the butt as I don't even have a record of what I sent and when, so I cannot even console myself in that way.

My awful response to correspondence of late, doesn't exactly instill me with hope and I am sure there are some of my pen friends who will have given up on me, not convinced that I value their efforts enough to get my act together. I hope this is not the case, but I'm not so naive as to think my actions have no consequences.

I don't always deserve the beautiful post I receive, but I want to try and work toward deserving it more.

2011, a new year. A fresh start?


  1. I finished a letter to you just last night and will pop it in the post on Monday. I can be a little slow in replying but I hope we all understand that sometimes life gets in the way.

  2. You don't need to worry, I know you've been busy :)

    I guess I'm more worried that my post is going missing :\

    You've put a smile on my face, knowing I'm expecting something from you though! xx
