One thing to send more snail mail

My favorite recent discovery:  I’ve had a physical address book for ages, but it’s not actually that useful anymore: most of my friends move every couple of years, there’s no space for birthdays, I forget to take it with me on vacation when I want to send postcards.

Where I’m going in 2017

I’m always hesitant to post about my travel plans too far in advance since so much of it seems to change–so much so that I rarely try to predict where the month, let alone the year, will take me. Some of my favorite trips in recent years have been very last-minute, and there are still places […]
