I fucking love Letters in the Mail.

(The swear word is perhaps uncalled for, but it was felt and so there it belongs.)

Not every time, but more often than not, these letters sit me down right where I am and have a little chat. Whether I'm shiftless or sad or distracted or paranoid or trapped, the right words come right into my mailbox. Sometimes, they even come ringed in a child's drawings.
