If you gift a letter from Compliments from Animals, and you feel it’s helpful for me to know if the recipient has decreased vision, please let me know. I’m more than happy, for example, to print in larger type, or we can talk about emailing a recording of the letter, too, or something like that, like emailing the written letter if they have text reading software. Anything you or they like.

I like to paraphrase Stephanie Burt’s take on poetry, where she says something like:
not liking poetry is like only hearing Beethoven and Kendrick Lamar and not getting totally into it, then deciding music isn’t for you.
Poetry can be sooooo different, like the difference between jazz and metal and polka and electronic, and in school you often only exposed to the so-called classics, which you might not like, but I can almost guarantee you might like another kind of poem.
Ordering compliments or insults from Compliments From Animals is easy and fun and cheap ($3 per letter). Best way to order for now is still to email email@example.com. All that’s needed is the person’s name, whether you want a compliment or an insult, and where you want it mailed to!
yes I am mad thanks for asking!!!
Doing my part to move the Overton window, one lane closure at a time.

A great new post from @kyleislikekyle on the life we miss when we are in cars.
COMPLIMENTS FROM ANIMALS
After a lot of planning and organizing across species, I’m happy to introduce COMPLIMENTS FROM ANIMALS, a correspence offered to you, from a surprise animal pen pal.
For $2 you can now order personal handwritten compliments, which will come from a specially selected animal pen pal in letter form, either for yourself or to be gifted to a friend or family member. Readers in need of coming down a few pegs also have the option to order insults.
I wrote this, about cops being incompatible with an initiative to promote "respect, kindness and inclusion."
I wrote a post about my boulevard garden, including the sad loss of a tree, and the happy gain of many plants from my neighbors/friends.
