Some Thoughts on E-mails and Letters

I have always loved writing since I was a child. I think I had a couple of pen pals when I was in grade school and we wrote each other up until I was in high school. I loved it when I had lots of clean sheet of paper and a nice pen - I just could not stop writing. I still remember being all excited about going to the book store to buy a new pen. Back then, Papermate pens were the in thing. (By the way, there are still Papermate pens today and you would be amazed at how high tech they have become. Imagine having a pen, a pencil, and a PDA stylus all in one thingy!)

Anyway, I was reminded of the whole writing on paper thing because of the slew of e-mails that I have to write every day. I still like writing but I rarely do it on paper these days. For one, it takes forever for letters to get to their destination. E-mails, on the other hand, get there almost instantly.

I wonder if we will ever go back to the old ways?
