I don't even remember. It's all emails and texts now a days.
Today. And it felt great.
I write to a Buddy in prison, no texts, no e-mails. no frills, a couple letters each week, loose leaf paper. This is what Sandusky has to look forward to. People forget dudes and duddetts in prison. That pre-vert needs to be forgotten, hard time is lonely, dark and unending.
Write personal thank you notes every time I want to thank someone - birthday/christmas gifts, job well done, etc. It's a lost art but I HIGHLY recommend doing it it. Wrote my last one two days ago.
A few days ago to all the people who took acare of my mom while she was in the hospital. Since she's been sick, I have given notes to the great people at CVS, all her nurses and doctors and people who have given her various tests.
I write notes (especially postcards) regularly. Many go to elderly friends and relatives who are technology challenged. Oh, and I write with a high end fountain pen (ink in a bottle, etc) just because I like the feel and flow of it.
I'm considered by friends to be an anachronism. I carry a mechanical pocket watch. I use a fountain pen and own several. I've even been known to use a wax seal on "special" personal correspondence. I buy quality writing paper. I also write personal letters and cards in cursive, using a fountain pen. I enjoy it. It gives me great pleasure and I hope those on the receiving end appreciate getting a letter or note that isn't abbreviated text or email with emoticons. I guess its my way of slowing the world down just a bit.
its been a while, but i do enjoy it. im doing xmas cards this year so that will be close to writing a letter.
I write hand written letters/notes of encouragement/well wishes a couple of times of week, as well as email etc... I still find receiving personal mail makes a person feel they matter. Maybe old school, but I'm sticking with it!
