Carpe Today – Write a Letter

Carpe Diem
Write a letter today. I’m not talking about an email, text or even a card. Put a pen to paper and write someone a letter. In this world of instant gratification, the letter has become a lost art form, leaving me to wonder what biographers will compile one day. I can only assume that people will print the lost emails of Dick or the steamy texts of Jane. It makes me sad to think that men and women of letters will slowly fade from existence. You can do your part by keeping the love of writing alive. Imagine how good you would feel to open up your mailbox tomorrow only to find buried beneath the piles of bills and your copy of People a letter from your best friend from high school that you haven’t spoken to in years. I know that feeling and it cannot be replicated by electronic correspondence, so put down your smart phone, pick up a pen and make someone’s day!
