13feb2013lc 006That all depends on the time of year. Fan letters begin arriving in earnest in September, shortly after the school year starts. The volume builds until Christmas, then slows down for a bit with just a few letters or packets of letters arriving every week or two. Then, as the school year is ending, my mail box fills with manila envelopes bulging with class letters. I struggle to answer all of this mail before the school year ends and students go home for the summer. By the end of June my mail drops off again to just a trickle until the Fall when the cycle begins all over. I try to acknowledge every letter. And, as you can see, I’ve begun to answer more and more questions here on this blog.
