I've been in the States for over a month now. I think that the time passes more quickly if it is over a month, because you don't have to count each day (although each day does, of course, count for something).

Today I got a letter from Russia! It is so nice to receive something in a friend's handwriting and to see the smudges where your friend touched the paper. Also, I think she mailed it out before receiving mine, so maybe they crossed somewhere over the ocean...

Sir, more than kisses, letters mingle souls, /For, thus friends absent speak. (John Donne)


  1. Я тоже тебе письмо отправил в эту субботу, интересно за сколько оно дойдет... :)

  2. How lovely. I also love letters, but e-mails are nice, too.

  3. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog! I have another American friend in St. Petersburg at the moment; I wonder if you have crossed paths with her? Her initials are ALN...

    Isn't handwritten mail the best? I love it :)
