This is from one of my favorite places on the web: Letters of Note "is an attempt to gather and sort fascinating letters, postcards, telegrams, faxes, and memos. Scans/photos where possible. Fakes will be sneered at. Updated every weekday." Edited by Shaun Usher.
I love everything about the simplicity of this project -- the way it works to bring telegrams, postcards, napkins scribbled with drawings, or fan letters to a wider audience. There is a deep intimacy in reading the words of letters never meant for more than an audience of one. I'm happy to know that these utterances are resurrected and given a worldwide audience. And today I'm especially happy that even Ms. Parker was sometimes at a loss for words.
