I think this is spot on mostly, and for some people it
may just take them a looooong time to get about to

For me this is actually true of things like sending
stuff to festivals and the like too. Life and the
scarcity of post offices, tend to get in the way.

EVERYTHING you got in the mail???!!! ;) Most of the
mail I get isn't even addressed to me! ;)

I think that is a great outlook to have however!

Right, I must go lie down now.
