Sending cards and letters

I think I’m going to start sending more cards and letters through regular mail this year. You know, birthday cards, Christmas cards, sorry-you're-getting-divorced-but-he-really-was-a-bum cards, and the like.

Sending cards and letters through the post is out of vogue these days because text messaging, emails, and Tweets are much more convenient. But those electronic thoughts are not very substantial. They have no texture, they have no weight. They're just a bunch of grouped together 1s and 0s packaged in pretty fonts, which has practically extinguished our one-of-a-kind handwritten touch.

So, like I said, I’m going to start sending out more cards and letters this year. Correspond with my family and friends in a more personal handwritten way.

I guess I better start practicing my cursive.
