I’m 49 years old and I wrote my brother 2 weeks ago. He is homeless and doesn’t have a phone or computer, obviously. He picks mail up from my sister’s house. They both live in another state, 1300 miles away from me.

The last I sent one was about two months ago. The last I received one was about one month ago. My friend Amy and I handwrite letters to each other approximately monthly just for the fun of it, even though we also correspond online.

My mom sent me an angry ranty letter about a week ago. I’m 36 and she’s 55. These things happen from time to time, but despite all the family drama, it was still a several-page handwritten letter.

Friday: worked on writing, will send tomorrow
Received: Last Tuesday, it took until Friday for me to have free time.

This is a one off, but I have a pen pal (a gal I went to high school with) that I write to regularly (and she writes back!). I’m 23, she’s 22. The more recent letter was in response to a post card, I’m 23, he’s 18. .

I LOVE handwritten letters. Sending and getting.

i send and receive one weekly to/from my friend who lives in Atlanta. We decided in July that snail mail was the way to go, and we’ve stuck to it. I love it :)

Last month I co-wrote a letter/card and sent it to my friend who’s abroad in France.

Before that I received a postcard from that friend.
