Handwritten Letters

Yes, I fear we’ve lost the art of letter writing. Don’t get me wrong, I love technology. I love email and texting via smartphones. But I also love getting a letter by snail mail and prolonging the opening of the envelope. Anticipation build
s while the kettle is put on to boil water for tea. It’s almost a ritual ♥ “A letter is always better than a phone call. People write things in letters they would never say in person. They permit themselves to write down feelings and observations using emotional syntax far more intimate and powerful than speech will allow.” –
