The theme for illustration Friday this week is "Mail." My favorite kind of mail is a letter with interesting tid bits and surprises hiding inside. It is rare and special to receive a little bit of wonder in the mail that connects you to someone you love who is far away. Emails are convenient and fun too but there is nothing like knowing this very paper was handled by your friend and lovingly written. My least favorite type of mail is obviously unsolicited credit card offers or circulars. Why so many? No matter how many times I try to opt out of junk mail, these still sneak through. oh well. poor tree.
