A Letter from Port Royal

My husband
said I got a
letter from
Port Royal,
that man.

Well, it was from Port Royal,
I had written to Mr. Wendell
Berry a Van Gogh card of a landscape
of a farm and told him a funny story ,
well, several. I knew he would
write back at least to affirm the arrival of my
letter. He is of a generation who answered letters.
And he is a writer. Writers write. He had two
sentences that were typed thanking me and he
was glad I am using his work. Signed
Wendell Berry.

That is so totally cool. :) I love that you shared this too. Way cool.

(sorry I sound like a schoolgirl with my gushing, but it makes me feel like that!)
