A couple of weeks ago, I received a letter from a friend of mine who I studied with last year. He made the effort to write out a physical letter and send it my way in a bid to check up on how life was going and also rekindle the lost artform of letter writing. It struck me when I was working on my reply that it had been a very long time since I wrote a personal letter to anyone at all. We tend to express ourselves and convey messages to one another within a restricted space of either 140 characters on Twitter, or a few lines on Facebook.
It could be just a regional issue, however I wanted to pose the question anyway – When was the last time that you either sent or received a personal letter to someone? Are you emailing more than sending letters these days?
