This is a thoughtful and wonderful article. Thank you for addressing such an important topic in an accessible and compelling manner. Hi Grace, that is good to know. Thank you for stopping by. This will be my topic for my argumentative speech. Hi Tim, thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts and feelings. Yes, as you say, even cards will do that magic, with a little handwritten note! I am pleased that you liked this. Have a good weekend! Hi Rajan, so true, those were some really good times.
I too miss them. Thank you for the votes and share. Have a good weekend! Hello livingsta. Your hub article has riled up anguish and desire both. I am saddened because I love getting a card from a friend in Sweden, yet I have not sent any of late near to six months. Discovering your well written and provocative hub has caused a stir to seek out new avenues for communicating. Maybe not a letter, as any who know me will attest they cannot read the scratches, yet maybe cards will do. Possibly using a script font for poems inserted on parchment type paper will offer the desires you have eloquently presented. Thanks for sharing and inspiring new change. 5 years ago from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar,INDIA. I do miss those wonderful times and the waiting for letters was so thrilling. Technology has taken away so many simple pleasures of life from us. Voted up and shared.
Hi LupitaRonquillo, thank you so much for reading and sharing your views and thoughts. What you have said is so true. I used to enjoy reading letters from my grand-mum when I was a child. Yes the wait itself is sweet. I hope people come out of their busy schedule (including me) and take some time to write to their loved ones! Have a great day! I couldn’t agree more! Lost are the days of the handwritten letter, where more intimate details about a person were discovered, revealed through their handwriting or type of paper used, or how long their letter would have been. Lost also is the patience in waiting for “replies” making the receipt of long awaited letter that much sweeter. Today’s societal flaw is a lost “patience” in the age of instant and technology. I do still write letters but not as often as I used to.
That was my little brother. I am actually doing a report and this was a How-To link under an assignment. I agree with your article completely and enjoyed it. Please delete both comments. Letter writing is a useless art if you ask me. There is a convenience in e-mails and the phone, and who says there is not a personal touch? I took the time to write this out did I not? Nothing would get done. Very true Marwan. Thank you for stopping by and dropping a few words ! Very nice piece. Letter writing is indeed a dying art in this day-and-age. I remember back in the early 1970s, as you say, people would wait with trapidation for their letters, read them with a sense of awe and write them with intensity. These were the days! Everyone loves to receive letters ! This hub reminds me, I have a letter to write that I have been putting off. Thanks. I’ll get to that this morning. Personally – I love to receive letters, haven’t actually in about 15 years. Oh..thanks a lot for passing by Putz Ballard. Great hub, love to read some of the olde letters when I see them, especially those from Civil War soldiers to their wives and girlfriends. Hi Wrenfrost , thank you for reading and commenting. 8 years ago from U.K. Great hub livingsta and so true, letter writing is becoming a lost art. I love receiving letters but I can’t remember the last time I got one.
