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 am doubly fortunate.
