** Email me if you are charmed, intrigued, instantly smitten. I'm looking for people with whom I can exchange personal, open, interesting letters. With some regularity. As opposed to short, superficial, and sporadic. Oh and also photos and art and music and sweet little gifts if it should come to that.
