Many a year ago I recall wishing I had a penpal, though for some reason I was never (in the days before the internet) able to find a way of getting in touch with others who were interested in penpal relationships (maybe it just wasn't a popular / pervasive idea in my part of Australia). Today, aside from Birthday cards, the only letters I send are the occasional customer compliment to businesses where I have received amazing service, and to players I am playing snailmail chess against (and a recent addition being Amnesty International letters inspired by this post). And so, do you write letters? If yes, who to, and (in general) what about?
Curious George: the lost art of letter writing In this day and age of ubiquitous email, instant messaging, online forums, and text messaging, do any of the Monkeys write letters anymore?
