One of the best parts of working in television and film, especially in the Internet Age, is the privilege of interacting with fans. And SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED is graced with a passionate – and talented – fan base. One such fan is devoting her efforts to Alameda & Downing – A Signed Sealed Delivered Blog.
The name comes from a very brief reference to the location of the DLO in Denver as reported in an article read by Rita in the last scene of the pilot. What attention to detail someone has!
The funny thing is that Alameda & Downing is actually a very unlikely location for a major post office. It’s only two blocks from Washington Park near a residential area about two or three miles from downtown Denver.
I used that intersection as a little nod to God – a reference to the intersection where, when I was walking to my junior high school one snowy morning, I slipped and fell directly in front of a speeding car. It is an absolute miracle that I wasn’t killed. But there wasn’t a scratch on me.
I often think of that place as the first time I realized that there really might be angels in the world and that God really DID have a plan for my life. How different my life would have been without an angel at the corner of Alameda & Downing.
