A meme from Booking Through Thursday.
Today’s topic is “Different kind of reading … what do you think about letters? Do you ever send them anymore? Receive them? Or do you just do email and texts instead? Do you miss the days when people used to write letters?”
I like letters. I never send them. I never receive them. I email and text. I do miss letters. I had several friends move as a child and we used to write letters but eventually we lost track. I hate losing track of people. For a while I had a pen pal that we had met on our trip to the grand canyon. I think I still have her letters at my parent’s house. I think we tell ourselves that social media and email and texts make it easier to keep up with people who are far away, but I think really it just means we don’t have to prioritize which people to keep in touch with and when we don’t prioritize we don’t put enough effort into any of the relationships.
