With the fast rate at which technology has been advancing, it’s easy to forget all of the basics that we once relied on for communication.
I personally love the gift of hand written letters in the mail. I also like writing them myself. Letters help you to make thoughtful responses, since you don’t have the luxury of rearranging it or backspacing. Receiving a letter makes me feel special, because you realize that the person put time into writing it. Technology favors the immediate response, and as a result, we get impatient, and when someone doesn’t respond after 2 minutes, we freak out. Letters at least soften that need of urgency.
What bothers me is that people are forgetting what a joy it is to receive them, and send them and what’s even worse is that people are forgetting all together HOW to send them.
My mission is to re-educate people on letter writing, from how to address an envelope, to determining which stamp is the best, to even reminding them why there is so much joy in receiving a hand-written letter.
