Are you still writing letters the old-fashioned way?
When is the last time you actually took the time to sit down and 'handwrite' a letter to a friend or loved one and send it U.S. Mail?
I don't really but when I study I always prefer to write things down by hand. I love writing by hand and I think I would do it with letters if my handwriting was prettier. I really like the personal touch. In the UK there is a huge tradition of writing cards for any and every occasion. You can sometimes find up to 8 card stores in one shopping centre. This is a nice tradtition that makes us stay personal.
Your 'Team Leader'
I always write personal letters with pen and ink on writing paper then send them by Royal Mail.
I love to write letters. My friends request letters from me because they say it's like having me in the room with them. I write the letters just as I speak, only with written intonation - if that makes sense. Meaning, I use all the dots and dashes used in our speaking voices - only I write them.
It's cliche, but letter writing is a dying art. It's so personal, a piece of us ink and paper. When we're no longer alive and our text messages are long gone we should at least have letters to loved ones telling them that we love them, or that they make the best Lemon Chifon cake, or that nephew Jimmy hit looked wonderful in his uniform even though he hit three fouls during the game on Saturday.
History has proven that over the centuries letters, and only the written word has been our mark, our stain on the Earth that has endured through time.
