This article was found by Carolee from Good Mail Day. It was published in 1980, right when I was just starting to write letters and find my first pen pals. It's a good reminder that the letters, postcards, or any handwritten note can really mean a lot to those we love and care about. Read on...
With the introduction of email, Facebook, Twitter and texting in recent times, it seems the art of letter writing is even rarer these days. I use all of the above methods for day to day correspondence, even more so than the phone, but I still like to handwrite letters, postcards and thank you notes. I love finding different stamps and popping mail into the big red box to send it on its way. I imagine in 100 years from now, someone will stumble across a bunch of letters that I have written and wonder what this crazy woman was rambling about!! Actually, my current letter friends don't need to wait 100 years for that!
Yours in writing,
