Thanks for sharing this. I really loved reading it, and it sparked a whole bunch of thoughts for me (which I wrote about on my blog, so as not to hijack yours :) )

I had lots of penpals when I was younger, it was fantastic. You are so right about the stamps and the postmarks and the excitement. It makes me wonder if L might enjoy this as well.

Yeah, I miss penpals too and the stamps from faraway lands. Some years ago, you could still get email pals to write letters. I have tried writing emails to Dante, but it's quite hard to do so! Now he is claiming technology is preventing him from replying ...

Hi Jen, I still think you have the nicest handwriting out of all of us... ( mind you, that's not much of a compliment coming from a doctor)...

Believe it or not, I still handwrite letters to special people in my life, such as my wife and children, especially when I am away from them, or just on special occasions.

There is something special about the personal touch and the physicality of paper. It feels so much more permanent and real...

Oops, forgot to mention, thanks for the Birthday wishes!
