Sunday Memories: The Last Time We Met We Used Pen And Paper



Twenty-five years ago, we were all in China together. We wrote on thin pieces of paper mailed in pretty envelopes with rarely seen stamps to friends and family who got our news maybe two weeks later and by that time the homesick may have past, a heart may have been broken after notes of hope read, and new adventures had in a foreign language.

A letter meant so much not all that long ago..now oommunication is taken for granted. It is a bit of a miracle that someone on the other side of the world can be conversed with in real time.

I still believe letters are important, conveys that you actually took the time to sit and think about what to write to someone...I think myself and a handful of friends still appreciate it. :)
