Handwriting Is The New Black

27 Sep

Babble on started this meme.


Basically you agree to write a snail mail letter to someone each week.


See here for her details.


I sent a letter to my brother and today another to a child I know who turned 16. She is now the oldest living survivor with a rare genetic condition that she has. I think she survived so long because of her loving family, but really it is God’s will.


It is fun to write to children. They love getting mail so much.


When I get a personal letter, I tear it open and devour it. My favorite letters are ones where the writer says something they like about me. Those are my favorites to write also – telling people what I appreciate about them.


I also love writing and reading letters that are very present with what is going on. there is something very beautiful about reading about the objective reality. I love that in blogs and literature also.

    I like getting mail but I’m not much of a letter writer unless it is email. I think I will explore this further. Thank you for the link.

    Well done, isn’t it fun and enjoyable knowing how much people smile when they get the mail.

    I hope you keep it up a bit – and I am sure the receivers do too.
