My dad used to always write me letters, and I used to write letters a lot more as well. An e-mail or FB post just does not have the same weight as a letter. I had to write one the other day to my girlfriend in Norway, and my hand HURT by the end of the 2nd page - guess I don't put pen to paper often enough these days!

I do miss writing letters and buying wonderful greeting cards to send to a friend. I have one friend that I write letters to, I also send her and another friend greeting cards which I make. Otherwise I send emails and egreetings and receive them as well; but I must say, there is nothing like receiving a letter in the mail. Letter writing seems to be a lost art.

I agree, letters have fallen away and it's a terrible shame. I still write letters all the time. When I was younger and struggled through life situations I wrote to an imaginary character that I created. I'd gotten the idea from Anne Frank. I don't write to imaginary people anymore, but I do write letters to my boyfriend all the time. I think letters open up a piece of you that you will never be able to show over any form of instant messaging. Long-hand letters just have something different about them.

When I was in junior high school I remember we all had to have a pen pal. I believe the idea came from the Scholastic magazine the my teacher use to get. My pen pal lived in England, her name was Pam and we stayed in touch until she became a police officer or I got married(?) I can't recall why we stopped writing, but once in a while she pops in my mind. It is a fond memory.
