Fortune Friday Week #52: Unfolding Beauty

Here's to life and its unfolding beauty as we journey on.
  ~ Gina Morakinyo

A few weeks ago a mathematician reminded me of the beauty of handwritten correspondences.
Postage stamps and hand cancellations from Kiev, 1993
He presented me with two large packages filled with postage stamps and envelopes from all over the world.  (A few countries no longer exist.)
Hand cancellation stamp, Baltimore, MD, July 17, 1993
Today I was going through the packages, and found a hand cancellation stamped on the back of one of the envelopes from Kiev: Baltimore, MD, July 17, 1993.
