I used to have pen pals, back in the pre-internet days. It was always so exciting to get letters in the mail. I had a years-long correspondence with a guy in England, twenty-page letters every month or two that started out about music but turned into chronicles of the rest of our (very different) lives. (That sounds like the plot of a syrupy romantic movie, I know, but it wasn't like that. We just both liked writing.) We fell out of touch when I was in college, when I started talking to people on the internet. My attention span got progressively shorter, I guess, and writing a substantial letter takes considerable time and effort.
I've been neglecting LJ lately, so maybe it's best to start small. I'll try to write more here in the coming month. I won't say daily, necessarily, but I'll try to be a bit more present. Let's see how that goes.
