Just now, I read Elizabeth J's latest post, Letter writing - a lost art? She talks about how how great it is to recieve letters; how it can make a bad day that much better. Elizabeth also talks about how we've replaced letters with emails -- and even blogging.
"While email is often very convenient the truth is, we don't save those emails and years later; we'll have forgotten about them. Letters aren't like that. They hold more memories, they give us something to read back over, and seeing a friends hand-writing from years passed can remind us of how things have changed and how glad we were that we grew up with our friends."
Okay, so you know that now. (Or maybe you already did.) But what I want to know -- Why don't you write letters to your friends? And if you DO write letters to your friends -- how come? Did you find the art of letter writing so much more.. personal? And, like Elizabeth said -- that more time had gone into it?
Letters are more likely to be read than emails!
Are you having a disagreement with a friend? She's not replying to your emails? Well then, why not try writing & sending her a handwritten letter -- I mean, who can stare at an envelope addressed to them, and not read it? Not me, that's for sure :)
When was the last time you actually recieved a letter, not including a subscripton or anything?
Me? I can't even remember!
Not sure what to write?
Well, you write emails, don't you? Just write about your life; what you're doing, how much you miss her/him! An easy way to do this is act as if this sheet of paper is your diary; blurt out everything! (That is, everything you want this friend to read :P)
Okay, girlz. Here's your "Challenge" for today, or some other day during the week:
Write, decorate & send a letter to a friend. That's it -- see, how simple is letterwriting? Oh, and you don't have to decorate your letters, of course -- but to me, "decorating" is just a border, or some hearts (Haha, that's about all I can draw :P)
Well, hope you enjoyed today's post. I was stuck on what to post on for a couple of days, that's why I didn't post :)
