Day 23: Technology
I love email. I adore blogging. I get lost on eBay and Pinterest.
I’m talking about real mail. Not junk mail or catalogs or coupons. Not the newspaper. Not bills or bank statements.
Think about the last time you opened your mailbox to unexpectedly find mail. A card, a note, a care package.
Are you smiling? Of course you are. Mail does that.
I love sending random cards. Hello cards, cards to say I’m thinking of you, or, have a good Tuesday.
When the card store in the mall by our apartment went out of business, I bought hundreds of cards. I’m not even kidding. Hundreds…plural. I love cards.
I even design them. In secret.
I will never stop sending cards. Even as technology advances and things become more automated, I will stay locked in the old days of handwritten cards. It’s a old-fashioned act that deserves to kept alive.
