follow the instructions

When I was a teenager, I “passed notes” at school with my friends. I kept many of them as souvenirs from that time in my life. I wonder if some notes that I wrote are in my friends’ basement boxes somewhere. Those notes, with the scratchy pencil writing and little drawings on the margins, were so much more personal than today’s text messages.

When was the last time you received a handwritten letter? When was the last time you sent one? This instruction is on display at my local post office. It might be a fun one for all of us to follow.
