Almost One Year

Do you know the hashtag #xtremephilately? It was first used by @ExploringStamps back in 2017, and it is used now for philatelists around the world.
Extreme philately consists on taking a picture of a stamp in front of the motive (place, building, person, event, animal, plant, etc.) it features. This has been my first attempt:
Go take a look on Twitter or Instagram.

The Random Letter Project
Random Letter Project is an interesting project. It is simple: there is a writing prompt every month. If you feel inspired, you write a letter; then, you got a random letter about the same subject sent by another contributer.
You can read on the project site how it works:
WRITE YOUR LETTERMonthly we'll post a new topic to write about. Write as much or as little as you'd like.SEND YOUR LETTERRandom Letter Project6929 N Hayden Road C4#502Scottsdale, AZ 85250WAITA random letter from another person who contributed will be dropped in your mailbox when you least expect it.YOUR HOME ADDRESSYah, we never share this info with anyone. All letters come to one location and we swap them from one envelope to another.BUT HOW?When you send your letter, be sure to include your return address on the envelope. We'll use those details to send you a random letter back.YOUR LETTER GETS A NEW ENVELOPEJust want to reiterate - we swap your letter from one envelope to another. Don't worry about your address being on there. It's what we'll use to send you a random letter back.
I tried in November and got my random letter back. No letter received for my December letter, though.

Another Postal Mystery
This letter was sent by Bryon to Canada on 7 March 2020, to be postmarked with the special postmark of the Apple Blossom Festival. But it only get the postmark on 26 October, and reached me on 3 December. I was puzzled when I read it whishing me a happy Spring!
Maybe the festival was delayed, maybe it fell between cabinets in a post office where a janitor eventually found it... Where it was between March and October will remain a postal mystery.
