I'm very sorry to read that you lost your Mom recently.  I lost mine too, and we were very close,

especially for the last ten years of her life.  I hope you'll carry her memory close in your heart.

I care.

Good day,

 

I am not an AARP member but am just looking for people who are interested in receiving a letter or postcard, or exchanging them, during this strange time. 
I am not sure how to receive/send messages here and it seems we can't post our e-mail addresses, but if you know how to respond and are interested, please do!

 

I have 2 dogs, 2 rabbits, 5 chickens and 4 acres.  Hope to hear from someone who could use a piece of mail to brighten their day!

Hi there! My name is Lily and I am looking for a penpal. I'm 65 and have been pretty active and independent all my life. I divorced at a late age and I'm trying to navigate life post divorce. I would like to share and enjoy someone's perspective on a lot of different subjects and in life in general. I've been in the field of behavior health most of my life and find people of all walks of life interesting. I believe that we can manifest our future and try to stay positive and in the moment. I like to travel and create special memories and enjoy friends and family as often as i can. I also like my down time and can marathon some new show on Netflicks and order in some good Chinese food. I am comfortable alone and with others. I have sisters and a lot of friends that are like sisters. I have  brothers and male friends that have been like brothers so I'm comfortable with either. 

I thought of seeking a pen pal due to the corona virus and not being able to go out and enjoy the outdoors, classes and volunteering.

Hi Lily, my name is Don. You sound like you are both sensitive and intelligent. That you are interested in a ‘a lot of different subjects’ is an attraction. I am 79 and my body is in marginal condition, but the volume of my email writing may be wearing on my four grandchildren. My working life was as a mathematician programmer.

About me:

I’ve been retired for nearly twenty years; the most time was spent in México.

I believe that sapiens is at a branching point in our evolutionary journey

I enjoy two-way rational communication on a variety of topics:

Spirituality, I’m a Catholic who is open to Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, e.t.c. But not the social gatherings of any faith or any version of materialism. I have little patience with religious extremists of all faiths.

Liberal politics- (anti-Trump) however, if conservatism is ‘taking the safest path’, then I’m a conservative supporting Andrew Wang.

Physics, especially the spiritual connotations of quantum theory, such as the relationship between the big-bang and quantum entanglement is of great interest.

Evolution and philosophy of change, Lamarckian evolution, epigenetic, punctuated equilibrium are common reading genre.

I’ll will try to post this but I’m unclear about the procedures.

I haven't had a pen pal since I was in elementary school.  I am married, is it inappropriate to have a male pen pal?  I am not familiar with the rules.
