The post office on Lakewood Boulevard has a small counter for business, along with another small self-service counter. But it's really more about the post office boxes. There are walls and walls of them.
I like the geometric patterns these mailboxes make. But mostly, I like them because they remind me of when I was young and visited my grandparents. They had a post office box to force themselves to take daily walks. I enjoyed the walk to the post office and back, with either grandparent. But when I walked with my grandmother, she would remind me to be careful, not to step in oil spots, and so on. But my grandfather never had any instructions or reminders—with him, I could walk on the curb or dance around on the asphalt. And, if I remember right, I never did step in the oil spots when I was with him.
