General Store Post Office - Garnet Ghost Town, Montana

Who knew there were so many delightful quotes about old-fashioned correspondence? Thanks to the varied and lovely 'bouquet' at The Quote Garden, I couldn't pick just one to go with today's gold-hued view of the poignantly empty mail slots in Garnet's general store.

"To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart." 

"Or don't you like to write letters?  I do because it's such a swell way to keep from working and yet feel you've done something."
- Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961)

"Without 'tis autumn, the wind beats on the pane
With heavy drops, the leaves high upwards sweep.
You take old letters from a crumpled heap,
And in one hour have lived your life again."
- Mihai Eminescu (1850-1889), translated from Romanian by Corneliu M. Popescue
