No Excuse, Part Deux

E and I went to my post office box on Friday last. Sad little box, that. Pretty empty at this time of year, although I'm waiting to hear on a submission and it was regularly packed with [ugh] tax return info earlier in the year.

I did order some things to be sent there and it sprouts local newspapers twice a week, so sometimes it's not all stainless aluminum sterility, but it's generally blah.

Not so on Friday. On Friday it sprouted a little present. A tiny package marked 'books' from Canada. But not a book. An empty personal journal, all very un-US in style and exotic. All the way from British Columbia. Someone was thinking of me out there and that was very, very cool. I felt loved. And writerly.
