" A Correspondence" Project Begins

I've been using the Postal Service as way to Correspond with Friends & Family for many years now..........and continue to use it to this day.............sitting down to" write a letter in script" and "create a drawing on the envelope" has always been one of life's simple pleasures............hopefully it brings the receiving correspondent a bright day.................in return I have received tons of" great letters "and "fun mail art" from igniting  this process of "Correspondence"..............this year I will be documenting this process with a project titled......"A Correspondence" ..........in an effort to get back to traditional forms of correspondence and simple art making practices........in this digital world we live in........and also to make "getting something in the mail" fun again..............
