Last week, as I was shoveling my way out of town, my postal carrier handed me a package. And inside was a Danielle Paint Board original! I ran inside and took a picture, there were other lovely things in the package but I couldn’t help but think that this quote of Emma Woodhouse’s and Thor, are somehow very connected.
Anyway I LOVE IT, Danielle, thank you! I should have taken it on vacation with me. I should wear it around my neck as a sandwich board reminder. mmmm. sandwich.
Emma is one of my favorite books, I love it for a billionty of reasons, I almost always think of this dinner scene with poor quiet lovely sickly, Jane Fairfax, when I do anything of the postal variety:
"The post-office is a wonderful establishment!…The regularity and dispatch of it! If one thinks of all that it has to do and all that it does so well, it is really astonishing!…So seldom that any negligence or blunder appears! So seldom that a letter, among the thousands that are constantly passing about the kingdom, is even carried wrong - and not one in a million, I suppose, actually lost! And when one considers the variety of hands, and of bad hands too, that are to be deciphered, it increases the wonder!"
god. you guys. let’s sit around a table with some nice food and lovely company and talk of the wonders of the postal service. and of bad hands too.all.night.long. let’s increase the wonder.
Thanks Danielle <3
