another letter

dear you.

i don't know why i have such a strange fascination with writing things in letter form. i have found myself doing this in many places, from blog entries to text messages to facebook posts to real-life conversations. maybe it is because of my suppressed disgust with technology and my nostalgia for the old days, simpler times...when you got letters in the mail instead of junk mail in your inbox. i miss that personal touch that comes from a human signature at the bottom of a page, instead of some obscure [email] address that you could [obviously] never find on mapquest. i wish people could make connections with people, instead of having to send a micro-message hurtling through outer space before it touches down in the addressee's "personal" computer. although i apologize for my obsession with the letter format, i will not renounce it, nor will i discontinue my use of it.

from anna.

p.s. i don't know why this is in a weird font.

yeah... you should make it a habit to write to missionaries. between writing to katie (weekly) and liesen (bimonthly), I have lost most of that nostalgia :)

ITs so much easier to text, facebook, blog comment, or call!
