a pigeon + the letter writers alliance


I purchased a pigeon and am eagerly awaiting it’s arrival from Italy (perhaps he/she was a messenger for the papal conclave?). A pigeon friends! And because my feathered cohort’s arrival is delayed, the lovely ladies behind the Letter Writers Alliance sent me another membership. And along with it, a snazzy patch that takes me back to my Girl Scout days. The LWA is dedicated to preserving the art of letter writing — “neither long lines, nor late deliveries, nor increasing postal rates will keep us from our mission!”

Shortly after news of my pigeon arrived, I received a lovely letter from a reader named Anne Marie. On an official LWA correspondence card! I swooned. So I’m curious, how many of you dear readers are members. And would any of you New Yorkers be interested in a Letter Social (a gathering to write letters)? I love the idea of coming together in the name of written correspondence don’t you? Comment below or send me a note at lettersfromlauren@gmail.com.
