Back in the day…

POstbox

This mailbox contained letters from home, pictures, postcards, news. And sometimes free samples and stuff we ordered. And of course the telephone bill and the electric bill. And every time I opened it up, I had a sense of anticipation, a wee bit of hope, wonder. Even if most days there were no surprises, I loved that feeling.

Email and courier deliveries just aren’t the same. It’s not that I want to go back. Not really. It’s just that they have no soul… And this old box – it’s got soul to spare…
