Hope you are thriving with creative energy, and are done away with blocks.
With regard to your inquiring as to when was the last time I wrote someone a handwritten letter, it was last week, at the Landmark education forum the letter was part of a completion exercise with a relative.
I was reminded of the book by Agatha Christie where Hercules Poirot solves a case by discovering the fact that Mrs. McGinnty bought a bottle of ink. It meant she wanted to write a letter. And Mrs.McGinnty belonged to that class of people who did not routinely write letters!!
In my part of the world the postman still calls with letters, it has drastically reduced I mean the personal ones, not the official ones.
When you have brought this issue up, I could not help but retrospect that we lost a lot when we stopped writing letters. After all one can’t reread a phone call unless one records it.
Whether snail mail or email, I do prefer communicating through letters,Phyllis Theroux is right when she says, to send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart.
