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 Very Special Incoming

Every once in a while, I receive a piece of mail that I'm not expecting. More frequently than not, it is because I put thoughts of incoming mail on the backburner when things get super busy.
Today was one of those days.
Today I recieved a piece of mail from a dear friend of mine back home, my dear A.:

I've got to say, the beautiful AustraliaPost stamps are making me a little envious as of late! Haha!

So, in my excitement and sheer joy, I wrote back as soon as I had finished reading the last word of the letter for the second time:

The stationary and envelope are a 1970's stationary set that my mother picked up at a junk sale last week. They are especially wonderful, with my constant overseas mailings, because the combined envelope and 5 sheets of written paper weigh less than 10g. I love it.
I hope she does too.
I haven't yet picked out my stamps for this piece, as I want to use a simple $1.05 stamp rather than an eclectic collection of other stamps that add up to $1.05. In part to keep the streamlined look of the envelope, and in part because I don't think that that many stamps would actually FIT on the envelope!

What mail have you sent out today?
And--do you want to be penpals?
Send mail, send love--
