""i used to love the feeling of dropping a letter in the box.

for several days, the letter- in -transit would hover around

the edges of my consciousness.

this delay was an intrinsic part of the pleasure

of letter writing.

it had a special tense all it's own...

as iris murdoch has written,

the sending of a letter constitutes a magical grasp upon

the future."
