I have good friends that live halfway across the US and we connect via Facebook, eMail, and chat; but it isn’t the same as sitting down with them and spending time.
So, I stopped by an Office Max and picked out some nice paper, made time to sit down, and pen a letter. It was a bit of an odd experience because I have not done this in a long time. It was a refreshing and enjoyable experience. I hope that my friend and I can make a habit of this and really enjoy this quickly fading past-time.
In fact, I have been thinking of writing more friends a letter and really letting the tactile connection of the physical note help to fortify those relationships.
