A year ago, when spring began its tender arrival, I would ride my bike along the trail through the forest near my house. The trail ended at a lake, and there I would sit at the same picnic table each time, writing letters, beginning this project. Bringing new dreams to fruition. Sending bits of the love I knew to be important through handwritten notes, like this one below, while watching the lake come alive with people in rowboats and then transition to a meditative stillness as the sun blushed upon it.
That spring was one of magic in so many ways. It was a true rebirth, a blossoming of heart and soul and mind.
March 20, 2013 is the first day of spring this year.
What are your hopes for the spring? What would you like to see blossom in your life or in the world? Where will you find your spring magic? (If it’s transitioning to a different season where you live in the world—tell me about that!)
Please send your lovely handwritten responses to:

If you’re new to the project and unsure what the Question of the Month is, start here.
I’m still behind in my posts. BUT…I did respond to eighteen requests for lovely handwritten notes this evening!
I look forward to flooding the postal system with art in the morning. :)
Also, I know I skipped the Question of the Week on Wednesday…I’m sorry. I vote we start fresh next week!
Rough Outlines is my more traditional blog where I hash out the bundles of thoughts that pass through my mind daily. In this most recent post, I get into a little more detail about why and how I started Lovely Handwritten Notes and what the greater meaning of letter writing is to me. I also display a few more of the postcards I picked up in an antique store in West Virginia!
