    There’s an old mailbox at 110 Old Country Lane, but there is no house. An old foundation, crumbling, is all that’s left. The property is overgrown with weeds and shrubs, all crouching under three ancient elm trees. It looks as if the house has been gone for over ten years. In the rusty mailbox, one would expect to find spiders’ webs or perhaps a bird’s nest. Yes, there are spider webs, but there is also mail. Mail left, when the owners fled. A faded postcard from relatives, a couple bills, a catalog. Ordinary pieces of mail. Yet there is also a large yellow envelope, bulging from its contents. The return address is faded out, and there is no postmark. What is it? Where did the owners go? And why was the mail forgotten?
