I'm not terribly good at sending love letters but I do very well (if i may say so) at sending picture messages of poems, quotations and (really terrible) drawings to DPB. At least, he hasn't complained yet...
Anyway, what I really, really, really, really, REALLY wanted to do was draw your attention to the website The World Needs More Love Letters.
Well go on! Click on the link!
It's a brilliant idea and, like so many wonderful ideas, is beautifully simple: once you sign up to the mailing list, you receive a call for love letters. You're given a basic story behind the need for the letter and then... it's up to you. You have free rein to write your little heart out to a total stranger in need of love.
I've just written my first (TWO) letters AND made the cards myself (hmmm, yeeees, that wasn't so pretty... but it's the thought that counts). I can't wait to send them off tomorrow.
So go on. Spread the love.
And here's some love for you:
