“My wife… I want to tell you my adventures in case I do not come back, my notebook could touch you.”⠀ .⠀ In June of 1940, Paul Patrix* was serving in the French Navy when he was ordered to evacuate onto a boat with his unit, forced to leave without saying goodbye to his family. Over the following months, he could only write letters to his wife and children in a journal, not knowing if he would ever see them again. We’ll share some of those letters over the next few weeks. ⠀ .⠀ *Father of Dany, a.k.a. “The Girl Who Wore Freedom”⠀ .⠀ Normandystories.com⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀

I've been spending a lot of time at the library, which means I've been getting lots of used books. This is conforming ever more that I need more bookshelves and that I have very very eclectic taste in literature.

A V-mail (Victory) letter written by Private Hide Tomita to his family that’s incarcerated in the Minidoka Concentration Camp in Hunt, Idaho. It was written on October 12th, 1944 while Private Tomita was marching through France. He writes about the cold rain and mud and needing some toothpaste and toothbrushes from home since they’re hard to come by.

Hundreds of handwritten letters, all i. The 40s, brothers, uncles, sister, parents, church members, all writing to each other. The few I have read are so interesting, they conduct quite a bit of family business. None of the envelopes have their stamps. The daughter/sister at some point became Sister Catherine/Katherine - a brother is involved in the priesthood for a while, plans or dreams are made about life, family. I read 10 or so, it was so interesting. It would take years to read all of them, they fill a large plastic milk carton. Hours of time if I put them by person and date. Keeping them random I can keep the cost down. Also anything in the envelope, little cards, Pamphlets, etc will be left inside. $2 a letter, you decide how many you want, minimum will be 5 letters. Please leave a sold comment and how many you would like to purchase. Mail cost will be $3.00 up to 10 letters. After 10, the weight will determine mail cost. I have at least 300 letters. I will mark when all sold out.

I accepted a paying acting gig last night. It's not for a film or a play, but instead it's a civil war educational experience for children and young adults in the local community. I re-live real letters sent from a civil war soldier to his wife with an actress portraying his wife. Then afterwards we do Q&A with kids. We will go to schools, libraries, theaters, museums, and places that value education for our initimate performances. I took this opportunity because I truley value childrens education, I like portraying real people who lived and breathed, this soldier is important to the town in which I was raised, it will be a new and fun learning experience for me, and honestly the money is pretty damn good too!

My aunt and uncle came by the house tonight to share with my family a box of old photos and letters of/to my grandfather. These photos and letters where dated between the 1930’s-1979. There were some of him and of family members that had been sent to him, there were also letters sent to him from the Dutch family he stayed with after the liberation of Holland nearing the end of the Second World War. No one really knows much about my grandfather (including his kids) so it really was both heartbreaking and heartwarming to see, an amazing find for sure ♥️ I wish I could have met him. You can also swipe over to see my sisters identical twin (looks exactly like her, right down to facial expression) from 1938. Kind of freaky.

I have just spent a couple of hours reading dozens of the over 300 letters my grandfather King Whitney sent to my grandmother Norma during his time fighting in WWII. The loneliness he feels and the love he surrenders in every letter has brought tears rolling down my face. What a gift to hear his voice after 21 years since he passed. My son has the same handwriting and it just dawned on me during the Christmas break, as I was looking at his school notes. My son Whit never did meet my grandfather as he passed away the same day I found out I was pregnant. As he sits and reads these words written 74 years ago by a man who’s blood curses through his Veins I am eternally grateful for the family I have and the history of love that we share. Time passes by so quickly that I am no longer shocked by it but keenly aware that we don’t have all the time in the world. So seize the day, live it, love it and be good to yourself.

On Christmas Eve, after the family exchanged gifts, my Mom brings out a bag of letters. I start looking through them and am absolutely amazed. They are dated from 1944-1946 and are written by my Grandfather while he was in the Navy during World War II. There are letters to his father and my Grandmother. The contents of the letters are beautiful. One of my favorite quotes is after he talks about coming home after the war and being with Grandma, “That will be the time we can start living instead of existing. Isn’t that right honey?” 🥰 My Grandpa passed away last year but my Grandma is a happy and healthy 91 year old. I talked to her yesterday and asked about the letters and why there weren’t any from Grandma. She said Grandpa threw them away because they had a code of asking where he was and he replied in code to tell her. The Naval officers read all of the outgoing letters before sending, but not the incoming letters from Grandma. It’s fascinating and I’m so happy Mom kept these and shared them with us. If anyone has recommendations on making them into a keepsake book please let me know. 💙

Typographic war letter designs. My aim here was to show the idea of war letters looking unclear, rushed and not easy to follow. I used hand rendered typography through calligraphy and some digital type on top of backgrounds scanned into the computer.

The National Postal Museum and Mr. Carroll collaborated on the museum’s exhibition, which features several letters from the Chapman University’s archives. Mr. Carroll will share several letters from Chapman University's archives for visitors to see up close and speak about his efforts to find and save letters from every war in U.S. history. Since 1998, he has traveled to all 50 states and more than 40 countries around the world, including Iraq and Afghanistan, to find and preserve the greatest war correspondences ever written. A book signing follows the talk and "My Fellow Soldiers..." (Penguin Random House, 2017) will be available for purchase at the Museum Store and attendees can view the National Postal Museum's exhibition "My Fellow Soldiers: Letters from WWI" before it closes this weekend! Doors open to the public at 6:00 pm; complimentary bar and light refreshments provided. The talk starts at 6:20 pm.

When going through my nanny and poppa's things after my nan passed, my aunt came across these love letters they sent each other during the war. My pop was in the Navy during WWII, on the USS otter, a destroyer escort ship. He wasn't even 20 years old. When I've said their love was the real life notbook- I meant it. From beginning until the very end. I have never seen a love so deep and true then theirs and it brings me tears of hapiness knowing my pop got his last wish, to be with his love. 69 years married and now an eternity together... how amazing is that?? Even just in these two letters, the love feels so deep, "dear darling." I can't wait to sit and read these letters and feel closer to them both. My mom and aunt never knew these existed, but through all the moves in my grandparents lives they kept them close. I am sad that they are both gone- but at peace knowing they never have to be without one another again.❤❤❤ I've loaded some of my favorite old photos of them on my story.

When have you recieved a letter written by hand? My last time was when my boyfriend send me a love letter (after my wish) a few years ago before I moved to the same city where he lived. He wrote me he'd like to wake up next to me over and over again, and it filled my eyes with tears and my heart with love 😍 The book on the table is the first edition of Rintamakirjeitä rakastetulle, published in 1942 during the Finnish war years. It includes letters from a soldier who wrote to his wife. I haven't read the letters yet, but I became interested in the book as it was mentioned in Kotirintama. I am afraid my grandparents haven't left any letters to the next generations - I have to ask mom if she ever recieved love letters from dad! 😘

This year I wasn’t able to support Small Business Saturday like I normally do but I’m thrilled that I was able to participate at all & happy with what I found. I had so much fun & found many different kinds of envelopes, foreign postcards & letters that will be great in my journals. I also kind of went crazy on postage 🙊🤣 . . . On a side note, I’ve been really conflicted lately about not being on social media at all & spending time with my husband’s aunt on Friday, I took it as a sign that my heart is in the right place and it sealed my decision. She’s not going to see another Thanksgiving, we’ll be lucky if she makes it to then end of the year. So, I’m not going to be posting much or interacting here for the next 16 weeks. Weird amount of time you may say, but I have my reasons. The word I picked at the beginning of the year was “me” and I’ve not been focused on me at all this year but for the next 16 weeks, it’s going to be all about me. I’ll miss this wonderful IG community & I’ll miss the fabulous people that I call friends on here but I’ll check in now & then. I have to, I suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out) 🤦🏻‍♀️🤣 I’ll still be crafting & writing letters so pan pals fear not, you’ll probably get mail quicker this way! If you send me a direct message I’ll get it but I’ve turned off all other notifications. I may not be posting mail that I receive on here but I’ll always let the sender know when it’s received. ♥️ . . . .

Today I took my children to our village church. We looked at the work they and their school friends had produced for the Remembrance Day exhibition. We searched for jelly babies hidden around the church as a reminder of the original ‘peace babies’ created by George Bassett in 1918 to bring a sugary treat at the end of the First World War. We looked at stunning displays of over 4000 knitted poppies made by our village community. And I read to them, young as they are, the names of some the young men from the local streets that they know so well who lost their lives for this cause. Today we have reflected a lot. We’ve remembered all those who have given their lives in times of conflict. We’ve talked about how lucky we are to have each other, to live in a safe and peaceful home and we have given our thoughts to those who are still suffering the horrors of war today. I’m really proud of them tonight. In The Sunday Times today, Sebastian Faulkes wrote a brilliant article on the real legacy of WWI entitled ‘The Fog Clears’. In that he writes of a letter he read from a private soldier on the Somme front in 1916. Of the ‘real voice’ of ordinary men who since the introduction of the education act in 1870 were now able tell their stories. Like most letters it was mostly concerned with trying to reassure loved ones at home but his doubts could not truly be hidden. ‘Ps. don’t worry about me, I’ll be ok!’ he wrote again at the end. I knew before I read on of course that the only other piece of correspondence was a condolence telegram. As a wife of a husband, mum of a son, auntie of a nephew I feel these stories so deeply. For all those who have ever said goodbye for the last time. We Remember. Picture is of ‘War Game’ by Michael Foreman...my son wanted to know if even footballers had to fight ❤️

Twenty-three years after WWI ended, another world war began and the next generation was called to defend freedom, democracy and liberty again; this time it would be my father who answered the call - he was 19 in 1941 when Pearl Harbor was attacked. He would eventually join the ranks of those who served in the European theater. Trained to handle heavy weapons and tanks, he was assigned to a field artillery unit and was wounded near Coblentz, Germany during the Battle of the Bulge (where he earned this Purple Heart). He wrote many letters to his sweetheart (my Mom) both while he was training stateside and then after he shipped out. I share an excerpt from one here. He wrote this letter to her on May 24, 1944 while waiting in England to be shipped across the Channel to France (about 2 weeks before D-Day). In it he talks about meeting an Italian POW who, like everyone else, was “tired of uniforms, guns and war and would like to go home too.” Soldiers on opposite sides who find simple common ground - home, family, normalcy. He shares the story of a Welsh family who welcomed him into their home and how he shared what little he had as a way to thank them for their generosity and kindness. Acts of humanity and connection during a time of scarcity, uncertainty, division and war. So on this Veterans Day I remember my father’s service and that of every solider who has sacrificed those common comforts of home, hearth and the closeness of family. Thank you Dad - I’m glad you made it home to your best girl! Hugs and kisses always. I miss you.

This is my Uncle Russell Helie on the cover of this book. He was killed in the Korean War 6 months after he enlisted. He wasn’t quite 18. He wanted to serve so he lied about his age. My Uncle Kenny (his brother) was offshore on a naval ship and they would not let him go ashore to pay his respects. Uncle Kenny always felt guilty for encouraging his little brother to enlist. War sucks.

Happy Sunday friends. I hope you’ve had a pleasant and restful weekend. Happy Veteran’s Day to all the brave men and women who serve or have served our amazing country. Speaking of Veterans, yesterday Carson and I helped mom put away more fall decor into her attic and we found some amazing treasures. This is one of my favorites! Old letters from my Grandpa to and from his parents, other family and friends from his time in the Army. It was so strange to read about war rations and radio programs. My grandma wrote in one letter that her cherries were ripe and ready to be canned but she couldn’t get any sugar to make jelly. My, how times have changed. These letters date back to 1945-1946 and followed him from Ft Maxey, Texas to Fr. Hood, Texas then all the way to Okinawa, Japan. He even speaks of some of my dads family that he served with, and old girlfriends etc. funny how things turn out. He had no idea his daughter would marry that mans nephew or that he would never marry DonnaBelle Jackson. We can only walk the path, the Lord truly makes the way. . QOD: what’s your favorite old family treasure find? .

What better place to attend live theatre than Stratford-upon-Avon? 'Lilies on the Land', a fabulous show by these four very talented young women, is being performed in the Attic Theatre for just a few more nights. "A revealing, wickedly funny and moving portrait of four women who sign up to join the Women's Land Army during WWII". AAnd yes it is.. .. all those things and more. "Based on one hundred and fifty letters and interviews with original Land Girls, along with songs from the period, Lilies on the Land charts the personal journeys of four women who join the Women's Land Army – determined to work endless backbreaking hours on farms across the country in a bid to do their best for the War Effort." I highly recommend seeing it.

Same issue, different generation. No matter how many years go by, I still havn't learnt to watch you leave. "[...] l'ho sentita piangere e non puoi immaginare ciò che ha provacato in me. Non me lo perdono. Sento ancora quel suo pianto di disperazione, l'invocazione a tornare indietro. Per motivi già spiegati, mi è impossibile farlo. Ormai il 'dado' è tratto e bisogna 'tirare innanzi'. Mia cara Angiulinella, faccio appello a te, ti prego di stare vicina alla mia cara, forse in modo che non si senta sola. Colmala d'affetto, sino a stordirla, riempi tu, con il tuo amore il vuoto che dentro di essa ho lasciato. Che non sia mai sola! Tu Angela, con la tua forza, puoi aiutare tantissimo la mia Elenuccia [...] Io qui conduco la solita vita, lavoro e fatica. Nulla di più posso raccontarti. Ho solo un gravoso impegno che, grazie a Dio, mi tiene impegnato sino a sera tardi. Mi trovo abbastanza lontano dal più vicino centro abitato. Intorno a noi solo terra e mare [...] ma scrivimi di te [...] nel mio ufficio al campo base attendo notizie sul mio rientro. Ogni giorno una nuova speranza e ogni giorno una nuova più grande delusione. Papà ti vuole un mondo di bene e ti abbraccia forte. Se non è troppo arrabbiata, ricorda alla mamma che la porto sempre nel mio cuore, che è costantemente nei miei pensieri e che con l'occhio della mente passo sempre in rassegna il passato, i momenti trascorsi insieme, a sera disteso sulla mia branda. Di questo vivo e sopravvivo per questo. - Nonno. 1979.Missione a Malindi, Kenya.
