Hand writing is an art.
It is becoming a lost art.
When was the last time you received a hand written letter?
That sensation of carefully opening an envelope addressed to you.
What kind of stamp was used to send it?
Unfolding the paper inside.
Perhaps it's parchment or pale blue with the faint scent of the person who composed it.
Letters from a grandmother.
A daughter or son.
Letters from someone stationed somewhere far away in the military.
A love letter stained with tears.
Lipstick kisses on the back of an envelope.
Little hearts or o's, to dot the i's.
Along with a hand written letter come clues of the personality of the person who sent it.
Our handwriting reveals a lot about who we are.
Are the letters cursive or block print?
The depth of the impression left by the pen can tell you the persons mood while writing.
We can't tell any of these things in e-mails or texts.
Yes, now we can Skype and email and text and that's all great!
Instant communication has definite advantages.
But perhaps we should not be in such a hurry to forget the power of handwritten letters delivered
through the mail...at least while the mail still exists.
A hand written letter can be a powerful thing.
So grab a pen and some paper, write a letter.
If you're feeling really bold write one to your Senator or your congressman, you can even write one to Donald Trump (although, I hear he doesn't read much).
Write someone a letter.
Even if you never send it.
Have a wonderful weekend!
