Snail mail

Most folks have forgotten the long lost art of writing a letter the old fashioned, snail mail waywith paper and pen. To me, receiving something in the mail besides a bill is a joy. A note to say hi, words of encouragement, a sympathy card after a death, or a thank you note—are all treasures. One exception to this dying tradition is Christmas cards. I still send and receive lots, and opening up every one makes me smile. Yeah, we're all busy, and yeah, stamps have gotten more expensive, but this really is a nice way to tell someone you care. So go buy those cards and stamps, pour yourself a glass of spiked egg nog, and get writing!
