Isn't it great when you open your mail box and find (hidden between the bills and To the Resident junk) a handwritten letter? Snail mail may be a dying form of communication, but it's not dead yet. Help to revive this lost art by putting pen to paper.
Have you got a friend travelleing overseas or a granny who lives interstate? Skip the e-mail or Skype next time and write a proper letter. If you don't know someone who lives out of town, why not write someone a nice thank you letter? It could be an old school teacher who introduced you to your favourite author, a co-worker who always brightened your day, or a friend who helped you get through a tough time.
