Sit down and write out a letter longhand to someone who will appreciate it. Put it in an envelope, add an old fashioned postage stamp, and drop it in the mail to your recipient. Be sure to get some evidence of your “snail mail” exchange, either by photographing your letter, or even better still, the reply you got back. Extra internet points if you write it to someone whom you do not know, but still feel a common connection.
