A friend of mine moved to Maine at the end of August. She's a long time friend of my sisters and so has always been like part of the family. Over the last few years though it was just she and I in town so we had great visits one on one. Now she's gone and I miss those visits terribly. We decided when she left to correspond in the manner of old fashioned penpal exchanges. That has been great fun. So, when I saw The Letter Writers Alliance at Renegade Craft Fair this weekend, I just had to join. Theirs is "a member based organization dedicated to keeping the art of letter writing alive." Check it out!
