Ah, The days of receiving and sending letters seem to be in the distant past. In the modern era of electronic mail, instant messaging, social media sites, everyone is connected and communicating All the time.
Yet, the sensations, the smell, the emotion of receiving a letter in the mail are euphoric. Sending mail is however a bit more inconvenient as it means sitting down, finding time and space, and going to the post office to purchase stamps to mail it. On top of that, the time it requires to reach the destination can be another turn-off.
Do you send postcards when traveling? Do you write letters? Do you send greeting cards on special occasions? Do you love receiving personal mail in the post?
I like to send postcards when I am travelling, and I send birthday or greeting cards to mark particular occasions. I still write letters but these tend to be to grandparents or older relatives who I am unable to email. I think personal mail is really special, and when I get letters or cards in my postbox, it certainly makes a change from bills and pizza coupons. I should write more letters as I know how nice it is to recieve them. I think I may have gotten lazy over time as almost all my correspondence is via email.
YES! to all of the above.
I refuse to not send letters or mail, and I even use nice paper, and stamps, and a real mail box.
I find getting a real letter is very nice indeed.I have said this before, but will do again....when my son went missing (adult).We knew he would one day write.
When he did, I was over the moon.I carried his letter with me, where ever I went.
It was all I had of him.
When he sent another, I was able to feel he loved me, and I carried that letter with me.
All is well now, but it saved my sanity, just the letters to know he was o.k.
I send greeting cards through the post only. No I don't write letters, but I do love receiving personal mail through the post. While travelling we always send our 2 little granddaughters postcards. On 1 35 night cruise, we visited 13 south pacific islands, & we send them a pc each from every port! It took 1/2 the day, finding the postcards, stamps & a mailbox, so we wouldn't have much time to look at the scenery in the ports! And yes, they did receive all the pc's, thank goodness!
