Sometimes I find vintage lettering in the oddest places. This old hat display is being used by Whole Foods in Franklin, Tennessee to sling cookies and donuts. #typehound#typography#vintagetype
Ci sono molti modi per aprire la mente. Alcuni camminano, altri vanno a correre, c’è chi disegna, canta, balla, nuota..,. Ogni persona ha la sua propria maniera di liberarsi dei vincoli per un attimo!
Un attimo di sublime leggerezza! Io mi perdo nella natura, guardo l’orizzonte e creo. Ma prima di tutto ho bisogno di guardare lontano e non pensare a niente! E’ una ginnastica mentale che stimola e alla, fine se ho vinto la sfida, mi sento rigenerata!
Tu come riesci a isolarti? Buona giornata!!!
A little story about the truck with the letters in the trunk....these letters are the love letters written by my father in law to my mother in law while he was away in the military. They have both passed on from this life and these letters were found in an old shoe box. Hidden inside these letters shows the secrets to an undying love. 🌹 #loveletters#oldletters#thegoodolddays
#OnThisDay in 1775, following his appointment by the Continental Congress as Commander in Chief of the Continental Army, Washington pens one of his 3 surviving letters to Martha:
I am now set down to write you on a subject which fills me with inexpressible concern - and this concern is greatly aggravated and Increased, when I reflect upon the uneasiness I know it will give you - It has been determined in Congress that the whole Army raised for the defence of the American Cause shall be put under my care, and that it is necessary for me to proceed immediately to Boston to take upon me the command of it.
You may believe me my dear Patcy, when I assure you, in the most solemn manner, that, so far from seeking this appointment I have used every endeavor in my power to avoid it, not only from my unwillingness to part with you and the Family, but from a consciousness of its being a trust too great for my Capacity and that I should enjoy more real happiness and felicity in one month with you, at home, than I have the most distant prospect of reaping abroad, if my stay were to be Seven times Seven years."
Yesterday, I had received a text message from my childhood friend. She had found bunch of our old letters. 😂😂😂Dear modern kids, this is how we used to communicate in the olden days. No handphone or cellular phone. All you need is a pen and a paper. Write as much as you want. 😂😂😂Be creative. The funny thing: We were living in the same city during that time. But, I had moved out to a new house. 🏠

Today’s throwback is a collection of old letters and notes from 2000/2001. I was going through Mum’s stuff & just as I was about to get emotional, I ran into these stuff she’d kept for me. Some letters are way embarrassing to post but I’ve had a good laugh this morning. Thank you Mom 😇💕😅

بعضي آدما اينقدر زلالند كه انگار نطفه شان آميزش هوشياري و مستي ست،ژرفناي باراني وجودشان گويي سايه بر قطره باران مي اندازد،نور و نشاط از وجودشان مي تراود،و اما شكايت از پيري،چند سال پيش شاگردي داشتم كه علاقمند به يادگيري زبان يوناني بود،با اينكه سنش حدودا ٨١سال بود ولي هنوز خوب متوجه ميشد و اين منو سر ذوق مي آورد، و اما همين كه آدمي در چنين سني به سبك قديم نامه بنويسد و برايت ارسال كند بسيار جذاب ست،و منو واقعا خوشحال كرد،وقتي اين نامه باز كردم،فكر مي كردم كمي دير باهاش آشنا شدم، چقدر ناب و بي ريا،چقدر عيارش بالا بود،اون موقع گفتم كاش من الان همسن ش بودم يا اون هم سن من.بسيار لذت بخش بود و اين مهربان پيغام شادي آور از يك فرزند خاكي كه در انتهاي نامه اش از اينكه عمري برايش نمانده و بسيار شوق برانگيز از مرگ توصيف دمسازي كرده بود،مرگ را به سان موجي از هوا كه آدمي را به امانت مي برد،صحبت كرده بود،امروز صبح آقاي ميناسيان هم رفت،اين مرد در پرتو نور كه خوشا بر تو اي هوا كه روح چنين آدم نجيبي را در بر گرفتي و از محنت ناراستي آدميان تسلي بخشيدي،چرا كه اين انسان والا به شوق آواز عيسا به دنيا آمده بود.
