I like words.

I wish I'd written this letter.  Imagine the vocabulary, the thought, the sheer joy.  I found it on Letters of Note (recommended by my bloggy friend Jenclair of Bayou Quilts and Dolls). I just leave the site up and every day or so I read a letter or two.  

Many, like this one, were written ages ago, before I was born, when people knew how to write a letter.  This 1934 letter was meant to get its author a job interview.  It worked and eventually Pirosh won an Academy Award for his writing.  Impressed yet?

If you like words, too, visit Letters of Note and read a few.  Some will bring you to tears, others will make you laugh out loud, and a few will have you wishing you'd said that.
