This community was started as a penpal service for all Livejournal users in California. Since many people want to meet their penpals but it's difficult if they're halfway across the country, I decided it would be much easier to have a local service. So, if you're from California, you can join. Not to exclude anyone from other locations, but it's easier this way. Letter writing is a lost art, and I decided it was about time it made a comeback. The journal name is credited to The Beatles, not to me.
