Two People That Are Cooler and Smarter Than I Am

Lenka Clayton and Michael Crowe, creators of the awesome Mysterious Letters project.  They had a simple idea and followed it through beautifully:

“In April 2009, we sent a personal, handwritten letter to each of the 467 households in the small Irish village of Cushendall. We hoped these unsolicited letters would prompt neighbourly discussion, spreading across the town, promoting community curiosity.”

Not only does the idea of writing letters to total strangers in a small town strike my whimsical romantic fancy, the letters themselves are gorgeous.  Take a look:
