Recently, I posted some thoughts (It’s a Small World) on meeting people you would probably never meet, thanks to the internet. I mentioned that we now have the ability to contact someone, almost instantly, by email.
A reader brought to my attention another thought regarding this technology we have available today; one that I totally agree with.
The following were her comments:
“We no longer take the time to handwrite letters; why? Because it takes “SO LONG” for them to be delivered that the information contained within may no longer be of importance. I remember being so excited to receive hand-written letters in the mail when in college and younger. While I am extremely thankful for all that technology allows us to do and the numerous ways it allows us to communicate, wouldn’t it be wonderful to get something in the mail other than bills that need paid? I’d probably do a happy dance if I got a letter in the mail from a friend! I kid you not!”
