when did you stop sending letters ? i mean to your friends your lovers your grandad your pop group ? for me i think it was when i could afford to pay the phone bill. not actually afford it obviously but stupidly think i could then gasp in horror when the bill came. till then i wrote a lot to a small bunch of scattered friends. long scrawly often desperately honest things or at least that's how i remember them and that's how the replies or the replied to or the just out of the blue were and i know because a bunch of them still live in suitcase that's been dragged from under the bed to in the loft to behind the couch to on top of the wardrobe all the places i've lived. it's not been added to for such a long time

the box tops - happy times
