I had terrible problems with email for a few days this week. I couldn’t send or receive any messages and couldn’t see where the problem was. Remaining calm took some effort. I tried to think if there was ever this much frustration with letters and the postal service and realised it seems like ancient history…
And yet, receiving a letter in the post is still a very special occasion, isn’t it? Anyway, I decided to take the time to write more, on paper, with a fountain pen.
