Letter Writing

My uncle Julian, Bagpipe Maker to the Stars (Warning: sound samples are not work safe) wrote me a letter the other day. It struck me that people writing to me by hand is now an immensely rare event, and that I myself have not written a letter to anyone in about fifteen years. The last may have been during my gap year in Japan.

So, I’ve decided to write back to him. I have an old letter pad I found in the attic (“Elco of Switzerland”, green, 50 sheets, A5) and will use the envelopes and stamps usually reserved for communication with government departments, insurance companies or life insurers.

This will be a great event. Now I just have to think of what to write, although my biggest fear will be the lack of a backspace key and spellcheck.
