From BBC's "Sense and Sensibility" 2008 (Jane Austen).
Climatic scene in the third act. A FINAL letter sealed in the dawn hours....
Ok, so I’m loving wax more than I should. I’d go to a support meeting or something but I’m too busy CREATING. Today’s locally sold commercial wax seems to have flexing additives making it more pliable, and will flex under the strain of postal machines, allowing it to arrive at its intended destination in one piece. Unlike the old standard, which was/is more brittle in nature and may arrive cracked/broken.
Truth be told, Sealing Wax was just about the first security system. Sealing a letter while an awaiting messengered-horseman stood at the entry wasn’t uncommon. That sort of transit begged for such measures of security. That’s how you knew that your letter had been tampered with. The integrity of the seal spoke words of its own. (In rolls the cello music...)

Hello, I’m Nina, the maven behind the
IQS blog. I’m all about creativity (ya think?).
I work in several disciplines. So it's no surprise that the Art of Letter Writing would come knocking on my door. Smitten!
However, I did not want to simply add MailArt as a discipline to my website. Thus it became the IQS Blog within my site. And that is why there are TWO navigation menus. *Here’s a Tip: stick with the BLOG Menu in this Column. The main site menu will lead you astray into dark places where you will be screaming for help and no one will hear you.
• More Love Letters
• Letter Writers
• A Month of Letters
• Post Card Exchange
• Snail Mail Ideas
