New Thing #296: Time Passages
I had something lined up for today, and after it fell through because I had to work late, I found out that it wasn't as new to me as I thought it was. So I let it go, and decided to turn to my list for a new suggestion. I ended up picking one from memory, and I can't find it on the main suggestion page, which means the commenter left it on another post somewhere, and I can't remember where! Whoever you are, thanks! I wrote a time capsule letter and sent it to a friend. Having been on the receiving end of one of these, and having had to hold onto it for seven years before I could open it, I can tell you that they are tempting but VERY satisfying if you manage to hold out for the indicated time period. I'm giving this one ten years. Friend who's getting it also reads this blog, so I won't give away the contents. I will say that I went into detail about what each of us is up to right NOW and that I do spill at least one juicy secret. I'm pretty confident that I'll still be friends with this person in ten years, so finding me won't be hard for the person. Understanding me might, but only because by then human handwriting will have been replaced by robot code and four-dimensional colors.
