Of France and Friendship
Hella visited Strasbourg, France, last year and stayed with her penfriend of 50 years. Imagine the history in their letters. It must be as rich and detailed and storied as this lovely building.
Most of my correspondence is from the last 10 years. I lost touch with people I wrote to before moving to Pennsylvania. The last couple years I lived in Massachusetts were chaotic, and when I left, I left much of my old life behind. I think often of the many penfriends I had 30 years ago, and wonder what they are doing now.
