With emails and texting all the rage, the art of letter writing has become passe. Yet, I adhere to it. Every week I sit down with pen in hand... and write handwritten letters to my best friend. She lives across the state, miles away, and we seldom if ever get to see each other. However, we keep in touch by all means at our disposal. And letter writing, via USPS, with stamped envelopes, is one of our main ways of communicating. It has gotten a little pricey I know. But, nothing thrills me more than to get an old fashioned letter, or to send one. Since I do not have a mailbox outside my residence, I have to go downtown to pick up my mail. I do this once a week. But when I send a letter I usually do it from Meijer's. They have a mailbox there. It's much closer to where I live than the post office, and they pick up twice a day at Meijer's. Whereas... the downtown branch of the post office only has one pickup time daily. And since I'm seldom there, but once a week, it's a tad bit inconvenient, if I want my letters to get to my girlfriend in a timely fashion. So I opt for convenience. Do you write letters? Or prefer emails and texting?
