Day One Hundred Thirty Two
Day One Hundred Thirty Two - "Smells Like Patagonia"
A letter. From Patagonia.
Yes I could have contacted her in seconds over facebook... a letters worth builds as it travels longer distances, appreciating like money in a bank.
Email is typed, then sent at the speed of light to its destination. A letter is handwritten (no way) ... but just think of what goes into that: years of learning to write, the energy that goes into making paper and pen and envelope, then the transportation which carries it home.
All the way from Chile? Knowing their mail system, I'm doubly fortunate.
I have to apologize, blogger was down yesterday, severly hampering my ability to publish.. do not fear though, this photo was captured on day 132, which is what this project is all about.
Thank you all so much for keeping up! As always.. stay tuned!
