The lost art of letter writing should come back. E-mails and texts are great when you have to send a quick message, but "nothing, absolutely nothing beats a thick, creamy two pages of Crane paper, smothered with news and views, lovingly folded into a tissue-lined envelope." - Lindy Woodhead Hands Written, A Letters, Handwritten Letters, Slipstick, Things, Writing Letters, Letters Writing, Snails Mail, Love Letters

Do you still think love is a laserquest, or do you take it all more seriously?
This letter represents the letter that was being sent to England from King Claudius. Enclosed in the letter was Hamlet's order of execution. Obviously the letter did not make it to England with that writing, because Hamlet saved himself, but in doing so sacrificed his two friends lives. Hamlet finding letter was a turing point, because it saved his life.
Dearest Jim, I hope this finds you nicely settled in. The weather here is getting very chilly and we had a very large storm pass through. We survived but I am afraid the cat was struck by lightening and now walks with a limp and doesn't have a pleasant odor. He has refused to leave the underside of the porch, so we place bowls of cream out for him when we can.
letters......I miss writing and receiving letters so much. emails and texting are so dry and often confrontational, abrupt and empty. With letter writing you were a poet and a philosopher, a comedian. It was personal and caring. People saved letters and passed them on. They are in books and libraries. What have we become?!
