Alright, alright!!

cos-mo-post-al-an [koz-muh-postal-en]: adjective/noun
1. a person
who belongs to all the world; not limited to just one part of the world; can make their home anywhere in the world.
2. a person who believes fully that postage stamps and mail connect the world, regardless of where, from or to, they go.
3. the joyful experience of knowing you're a local because your mail made it to its destination

The postage stamp is truly wonderful. It can travel the world, experience the lives of a million different people, go through the doors of strangers; and never once lose sight of where it's headed.
Welcome to the land of cosmopostalan : travel, mail and words. It's a crazy little place in my corner of the woods; wherever that may be!

A friend of mine invited a young boy do a talk at a local library tomorrow as a part of one of her major projects.
Unfortunately, I am not able to attend the event.
So, instead, I decided to write the boy a letter.

This friend of mine is doing a project to assist the good works of the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer. And the young boy doing the talk is none other than an eleven year old pediatric cancer survivor.
My friends' biggest worry is that the young boy will turn up and have no one there to give his talk to.
So--a letter is necessary.
For things that can't be conveyed in person, a letter is nothing less than perfect. A letter can hold your innate feelings in such a permanent way that you'll never be able to let go of them.

With any luck, upon receiving this letter, the young boy will understand that I am very sorry that I am not able to support him in person.

Even though we've never met.

The letter is simple. A one-page piece explaining my situation, encouraging him for his future, and thanking him for sharing his story with the world.

Here's hoping he'll enjoy the accompanying illustrations!

I like to call this one "Mustachio"...

Kind of looks like a crustacean!

A little bit of thoughtfulness can go a long way.

I hope that is the case tomorrow.

Spreading kindness--
