The Mass Card
The box was left on her doorstep at some point in the night. She spotted it as she went out the front door to get the newspaper. One of the last of a dying breed, reading the paper everyday gave her a sense of stability and was an important part of the routine she established over the years. She picked up the small square box wrapped in brown paper and tied with ordinary kitchen twine. What made this box so special was the intricate drawings that encompassed the entire package. Beautiful hand drawn flowers – roses, hydrangeas, lilies, and daisies. Vines and leaves, trees, and stalks. Who would send her such a box, such an obvious gift. Just her name and address appeared, no return label. Stamped by the post office – Express Delivery – Handle with Care. Total cost $8.54.

I can't imagine being the person who figured how to make a cloth out of a single thread.
