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!

Herbet von Tillden, the postcard monkey

"Whether you like me or not, I like mail--maybe because I am mail... I have extremely long and dangly arms, quite simply because my constant movement requires them. If you want to, for a small fee, you can hang your laundry off my arms. I'll use my toes as clothes-pegs. I'm sure we can arrange something."
