My neighbor's mailbox - an original and not your ordinary USPS-approved residential mailbox! She's an artist, so likely an influential factor in the selection...I like it, but find it a bit odd that one would spend money, time and energy on such a creation - especially when the baseball bats come out every once in awhile with mailboxes as targets. But, I really like it - the shimmery oscillating ribbon stripes on the side and the 'holey' front which reminds me of the beauty of the leopard's spotted fur.

Such a piece can captivate me for hours, allowing my sight to search the various depths and my emotions to be identified. Free flow writing often emanates from and accompanies that exploration, reflecting my mind's wanderings. Time is suspended and distractions are few when truly engaged. I do wish I could 'bottle it' for sharing with others! Naples, FL


  1. I would never have guessed mailbox - it just shows that you have to be open to new possibilities.

  2. Wow- this is really unusual! One-of-a-kind!
