We live in the land of the lost. A world in which instant gratification, “likes”, comments, and status updates rule. We are attached to technology, why call when you can e-mail? Why e-mail when you can text? Why text when you can Facebook? Why use Facebook when you can tweet? The list goes on forever.
We no longer value the art of communication and correspondence. How often do you find something you actually want to read in the mail? Aside from the formal party or wedding invitation (some of which you still don’t want) the appearance of quality mail is rare (hell, I would even settle for a quality e-mail from time to time).
All that being said, I am guilty of loving social media and technologic communication,however, I have decided that part of my week will be taking the time to sit and write to someone (maybe you if your lucky). I don’t think letters need to be overbaring or long and drawn out, but I do feel that they are almost more personal than any other form of communication.
My phone may be my life line, but a pen and paper will now be my anchor.
