so you know these things you always get in the mail?

they come with credit card offers, mail catalog orders, and soliciting non-profit organizations. consider the envelopes junk mail, spam, or postal refuse, my plan with this blog is to make good use of them. i won’t be applying for credit cards or buying kitschy wind chimes or sending checks, but sending papered goods love in place. over the course of my 2 decades on earth, i’ve seen the rate for a postage stamp rise almost exponentially- the United States Postal System has raised its price practically 3 times in the past 2 years. i don’t contend to be an old soul, but yet i find myself saying, “i remember a time when stamps were 29 cents and gas was 99 cents”.

people claim to love getting mail, but yet not many actually send substantial letters to each other anymore. i love sending letters, postcards, and packages as much as i can afford to do so, sometimes it doesn’t even matter who the recipient is. here, with the postage already paid by the corporation/organization, i intend to make more use of the USPS, collecting these envelopes and sending back paper trinkets of whatever i feel like. this is a roundabout way of somewhat reusing and recycling the paper that is already out there. i figure, the postal service system will be able to derive a bit more business, and plus there has to be someone on the other side of these mailings who has to open all the envelopes. perhaps a recipe or a poem will brighten their day, it seems to be a win-win from all sides… even the trees.

  2. Hi ,
    I read the item on healthcare ,or lack of it the USA with interest. In the UK we generally have an excellent state healthcare, free at the point of delivery. Huge sums of money are spent on it an much is undoubtably wasted by the UK government. The service comes in for much critisim and quite rightly at times, but I am amazed that The USA which much be the richest country anywhere in the world , still does not provide free health care to its citizens.
