Letters from friends: news not only
from another part of the planet, but
stories of what’s going on in another
We receive fewer letters in this age
of instant, so when one arrives in the
mailbox you appreciate what is in
You realize someone has taken a little
extra time to sit down, actually slow
down, and record the moments with
paper and pen. There is a certain
intimacy to the sharing of thoughts,
or stories; a more organic connection.
It is uncommon communication, now,
and you read the sentiment differently
than you would off a screen.
You know a reply will be received in
the same manner when you write back.
Do write back. Send a message.
