The Pleasure of Letters

I found an autograph book from the late 1800s a couple of days ago and found myself absolutely wow’d by the beautiful penmanship. This art might be long-forgotten in our society filled with computers and ipads, but I pledged to snail mail next time I want to get in touch with someone I haven’t spoken to in a while. Maybe I will even get a little fancy with the letters.

After recently reading the article, The Letter You Need to Write, I remembered the simple pleasure and how I feel when I receive an unexpected letter or small package in the mail. Surprised. Excited. Loved. What a simple and lovely way to say you care.
