We live in a world that's changing so rapidly with high-tech gadgets and advanced technology that even though the time I used to write to my friends and loved ones or take a picture with a film camera was only a while ago, it seems like that was in another life time. Don't get me wrong I am an early adapter and love the gadgets and everything however, there are times I miss the good old days. Some of the students I used to teach didn't even know what a film camera was or what developing films meant. They were just amazed at it when I explained to them.
After reading the article it reminded me of how I wrote to a total stranger asking to be my penpal, wrote to my friends and family that were half way across the world. Mailing it with pretty postages, waiting and checking the mail box everyday. Oh, the mixed emotions I experienced during those writing, mailing and waiting… well, only the ones who had the joy would know what I'm talking about.
I, too, still keep some of my old letters boxed up and once in awhile scoop them up and read them all over again. Of course most of them are written by others but there are few that I've written and never mailed.
I think I'll be sending this year's season greetings the good old fashioned way. :)
Anyways, it was great reminiscing. Hope that you enjoy it as much as I have ;)
