It's been lovely. I have written approximately one letter a month since last fall to various friends far away.
I've gotten some letters back, which oh! made my heart beat fast in a way I had forgotten! I realized that in having instant communication via the internet with practically anybody, I'd forgotten the thrill that comes to the patient letter writers. Plus, there's such a broad palette for prettiness in the paper, the ink, the envelope, the stamp(s). That is a thrilling exercise, to root around my supplies.
So I'm going to keep up the letter writing. When I have a letter in mind that I want to write, I often write it on the bus ride to my job. It's a 30-minute ride and I often get most of the letter finished.
