Thinking about :: handwritten

Today I sat and wrote a card to a friend – there was no occasion. The card seemed to speak to me and I know how much she’ll love receiving it. How often do you do that these days? How much do you love receiving handwritten notes? I remember some years ago (early days of the internet) a friend who was singing the praises of email as her sister was having a long distance relationship that was being kept alive via instantaneous electronic notes. It was her mother who pointed out that there would be no history of love letters and when I think of that comment it still makes me a little sad. Fortunately for me, my (sometimes long distance) romance with the cyclist was pre internet and I have every letter he’s every written me.

There is value put on the handwritten word – go and read Letters of Note to be awed by correspondence. Oh, and send a handwritten card to a friend – you know it will make them smile.

    Beautiful thoughts. There are few things that make me as happy as finding something in my grandmother’s handwriting. Or a dear friend.

    Okay, I’ll send a note. (Love the pictures, by the way.)
