Do you still write a letter and send it through post?

To some one who is dear to you - a letter where words and sentences gushing from heart - it is really untiring sweetness of you. I keep writing letters to my dearest friends and post it rather than speaking over phone or sending emails. Can you narrate your experience?

I haven't wrote a letter in years. I keep in contact through the phone and through email. It is easier than remembering to buy a stamp, or have envelops on hand. I use to send cards for different occasions but now I just send an on line greeting card. I have even noticed that my handwriting isn't as good since I don't write much nowadays. So in some ways the speed and choices in emails are so much easier, we also lose the art of expressing ourselves in a hand written letter or card. The old fashion way was our words and our genuine thoughts. Now we look for quick solutions hoping to find someone else out there that have made a card that comes close to what we feel. Thanks for the reminder of what a true expression of our thoughts can be shown through a simple handwritten letter or card that we actually took the time to seal in an envelope, place a stamp on, and walk to the mailbox or post office and actually mailed.

Your postal service (USPS) had issued 6 special stamps in 1970's commemorating the art of letter writing and each had a slogan, one of the stamps has a slogan LETTERS MINGLE SOULS. I love to write letters to my dearest and nearest rather than email,fax,telephone etc. I am the only one who is following old style and old fashion. Thank y ou very much for your interesting response and wishing you a pleasant day.

Well, to some people I prefer to write a letter by post. Just special people. . Of course the internet turns our life easier and practice. . I send lots of e-mails a day. And I also receive some... Then it would be almost impossible sending a letter to all my friends. Even because I made many virtual friends...some in other countries. . it would be boring to wait days for a letter of them while I can just send an e-mail or to talk with them by Messenger or Orkut... take it easy!

It has been many years that I haven't written a letter. I send emails to my friends and call my friends and family and use QQ voice chatting software and Yahoo Messenger and Skype to chat with my wife and friends as well as cell phones and land phones.

I just done it last month when I have to wrote a letter to one of my cousin who lives in England and I just got her adresses from one of my cousin to and I had to wrote her so that I will know If there's any other way I can communicate with her.

The topic is encircled to emotional writing, writing where words and sentences gushing out of heart. Many people cannot express while speaking and hence they prefer to write it and post the letter even today. My sister who is USA with her daughter, always prefers to write a detailed letter, expressing her sentiments, thoughts etc. though she has email, fax, telephone, mobilee etc.

Dear ssh123, It is now years together, I never wrote single letter to anybody. Since all my relatives are having telephone connection I face no problem in talking to them over phone. I feel comfortable in talking over phone than sending a letter to them. There are so many problems involved in sending letters. First you have to write a letter in proper manner, second you have to spend Rs.5/- and wasting time in posting it. Writing letter is also waste of time. Envelope I do not purchase but use the envolpe purchased in the market. Therefore cost of envelope, wasting time in writing letter, wasting time in posting it, cost of postal stamp. I, therefore, consider to talk over telephone than writing a letter to them.
