Remember when you were a kid? Before computers and internet? Back then we had something called letters. You wrote them on a piece of paper, stuffed that paper into envelopes and then you went to the mailbox and sent them off. Sometimes they arrived at their destination quickly, sometimes it took longer.
I had pen pals when I was a kid, I remember the excitement when you received a letter in the letterbox, opened it and read what someone had to say this time. Receiving e-mails do not give the same satisfaction at all, and I have thought a great deal lately on the old-fashioned letters and pen pals and have been thinking that I want to do that again.
So today, I found first one blog about letter writing and that blog then lead me to other blogs about letter writing and I realized that there is a whole community out there that still do old-fashioned letter writing. I want to do that to.
So November will be letter writing month. I will aim to write one letter a day, I can do it on the train – the morning paper just have to wait!
Now you ask yourself: Where will she send all these letters? Well, I will tell you – I’ll send one to you if you want, just send me your address using the ‘Contact’ option under the ‘Me’ menu. Since I doubt I will receive 30 addresses I will find some on all the blogs on letter writing out there and send them letters.
I think I will even go and invest in some nice paper and envelopes!
