Rural Mailbox | Twisp, WA | 2012
What’s more utterly fantastic than a lone mailbox at the intersection of two gravel roads in the middle of nowhere? It’s a portal to exotic places and a receiver of valuable information. Millions of people use mailboxes to channel emotions — anger, happiness, affection — straight into the hearts of those who matter. Each isolated box is part of a gazillion-dollar delivery system that, in many ways, connects soul to soul. Most fantastic: The cost to send love across 2,400 miles to my aging Mom is 49 cents.
