Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

005 - Copy

They used to contain letters, cards, and bills, and such,

but nowadays mostly junk, and even that not so much.

I birthday greet on Facebook and pay all my bills on-line,

and with e-cards and e-mail, I don’t have to take the time

to browse and purchase Hallmark, so it seems that soon we’ll find

the row of ragged mailboxes will be an icon left behind.

    Boy, I sure hope not–technology has afforded us a great loss.

  2. What a sad iconic image and words. It is so true. I still will send cards, but not as much as I used to. I love the image and your take on letters!

  3. Wow, you’ve captured great memories here. I loved receiving letters and didn’t mind writing them either. My parents expected a minimum of one letter a week after I left home for college. I even wrote every week if I also called. It’s been a long time since I received a letter.

    What a wonderful image of mailboxes! Our rural box is simply one green door in the bank of big green boxes that Canada Post calls a ‘Site’. It had been a long time since we got an actual letter, but yesterday we got a Wedding Invitation!

I would love to hear from you!
