Writing is one of my favourite things. I've loved it all of my life and I don't give it as much attention as I should. I love writing poetry, stories, memoirs, all of it. I also love writing letters. Currently my entire writing equipment (apart from my rad German typewriter) is in storage, so a big sorry shout out to all my pen pals out there. I know I have some outstanding letters to send, which won't get to you until after Christmas.





Letter writing is a very intimate and polite thing. When someone writes a good letter, it takes time and energy to write it. They pour a certain amount of energy into it. When you hold the letter in your hands you have this connection with the person who wrote it, which is a very special thing and should not be exploited of by the writer, or the reader. The thing about reading a letter is that you are usually alone, and free to express as you desire regarding the contents. This skirt is by Review, the moment I saw it I knew I had to have it. It's called the Love Letter skirt.

I just want to note some letters that I really loved in good books. The letter from Darcy to Elizabeth, which was so business like after her rejection of his rude offer of marriage. This letter gave a completely knew perspective of the character of Mr W. Another favourite Jane Austen letters is that of the one in Persuasion which is given by Captain Wentworth to Anne: "I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever."


A Love Letter To Perth
I carve little homages, to you, my love,
I emboss them in paper with ink and nib.
I trace the treasures of your skyline, darling,
In the fibers of this paper and this being.
