So why don’t we write them? They’re beautiful, they’re exciting to receive, and everyone wants them. Go search “handwritten letter” on tumblr tags and you’ll find a slew of posts about people longing for letters. Why can’t we write to our long-distance friends? Can we not resist the temptation to use our screens for instant gratification? College kids, long-distance travelers, best friends we see every other day. Let us create something beautiful and send it in the mail and wait a week to get something in return! It’s a lot lovelier than texting and facebook chatting. I think we can all agree on that. Let us write!
