Writing Letters

This last week, I was forced to write a letter, and realized how long it had been since I had done that. I used to write letters all the time, back in the bad old days of no Internet and expensive long-distance telephone calls. It was a great way of communicating with people. You took the time and effort to put down your thoughts and send them off. People knew you cared.

Now in the days of instant communication, there are so many people I don't keep up with. Very strange. And if I weren't a writer by vocation and avocation, it would have been difficult, a skill long-forgotten.

Anybody out there still use hand-written letters as a way of keeping in touch?
