with friends like these who needs enemies.

today was a good mailday.

a really cute letter from my adorable penpal Eileen, from Singapore.

a letter from my other, awesome penpal, d.R, from California.

Envelope of Lovelliness swap @ Swap-bot. you have to send one poem, quote, photo, sticker sheet and a letter to 2 partners. this is my swap for Holly.
poem: by e. e. cummings' who knows if the moon's...

 who knows if the moon's
a balloon,coming out of a keen city
in the sky--filled with pretty people?
(and if you and i should
get into it,if they
should take me and take you into their balloon,
why then
we'd go up higher with all the pretty people
than houses and steeples and clouds:
go sailing
away and away sailing into a keen
city which nobody's ever visited,where
Spring)and everyone's
in love and flowers pick themselves 

quote: "i'll let you be in my dreams, if i can be in yours." / Bob Dylan. 
photo: vintage, from early 40's.
stickers: by Sarah Kay.

and here's the envelope. cute?!

the other package goes to April. it's almost the same.
 poem: by me, i still see your stains on the ground 
there's still a little bit of frost
on the ground
i can smell the air
like mold and

good bye
good bye
good bye

words are there
never let them out
i'm sorry too
i still miss you

what if someone would have told you
that six years from now
i'll be crying at a buss stop
how life turned out to be
so much lonelier when
you were gone

and i'll never forget you
you still make me cry
and sometimes laugh too
when it doesn't hurt that much anymore
how beautiful you still are
even under the ground
oh darling, but Love
never dies

quote: "may i always decorate you without a seasonal reasoning." / Amber Tamblyn.

cute envelopes are cute.

my lack of blogging is not lazyness, i've just been dealing with stuff. yesterday i went to see Sherlock Holmes, and i'd like to write a commentary about it too. i think i'll try to do it with all the movies i go see in theaters. last year i saw 16 movies (well, slumdog millionaire twice, so 15 different movies) in theaters. this year i wanna see at least a few more. anyway, that's all this time.


  1. I love the photos of the mail you got and sent. The first envelope is indeed very cute. **


  2. Olisipa täydellisen ihanaa saada oikea kirje. Voi että. Inspiroit miua, tyttö!

  3. ecologicstoryteller: i'm addicted to mail :D. receiving it and sending it is just so fun! always cheers me up when i get mail.

    Mira: kirjeet on ihania<3. ite aloitin viime vuonna taas kirjeitten kirjottelun (esim. lj:ssä on yhteisöjä joista voi ettiä kirjekavereita, ja googlella löytyy suomalaisiakin sivuja). se on vaan niin ihanaa jotenkin, tutustua ihmiseen silleen hitaasti, paperille raapustamalla.

  4. I used to love having penpals! I'd be interested in being penpals with you if you don't already have one from Canada... you can email me swagnerm [at] hotmail [dot] com.
