Call me old-fashioned, but there’s something incredibly sweet and artful about love letters. The last few years of our social platform has skyrocketed (thanks to the Internet and smartphones) in a very innovative way as mass socialization among users with texting, tweeting, and one-sentence status updates exponentially expands. These social networks have enabled minute-by-minute communication as a necessity for millions, but falls short on genuine sentiment.
With this technological realm taking the reigns of communication and interaction, the art of letter writing is becoming a distant and fading memory.
If you’ve ever written a letter to a friend, a family member, or even a lover, how did you feel? Do you know how they felt after they read it? There is something incredibly satisfying, moving, personal and deeply intimate about entrusting your feelings for another onto paper. With Love Note Day taking place on September 26, there is an interesting and constant discussion behind these amorous letters. Are they romantic? Are they cheesy? Is the art of letter writing really, truly dead?
