Hoarding Letters

Washington, D.C. — Lately I've been having a difficult time getting myself over to the post office to post my "A Letter a Day" letters, even though it's a mere 7-minute walk away. It must be the lingering winter, the snow, the grey skies that encourage this laziness.

I must say, though, one benefit of hoarding my letters is that I get to see the spectrum of colors in the letters I produce for the week. It's not an intentional thing, but somehow my mind subliminally chooses envelope and paper colors that complement one another. In this particular case, I chose colors that are very "springy". I must be really over the winter. After the snow we got yesterday, who wouldn't be.
