Keep writ­ing let­ters

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - YOUR LETTERS -

What a joy it is to write a let­ter and re­ceive one in re­turn… the thought and ef­fort taken to com­pile a let­ter to loved ones abroad, Christmas cards dis­patched with love, the de­scrib­ing of a life miles away yet shared in the in­ti­macy of the writ­ten word. While some deem this an­ti­quated and out­moded, I think it’s vi­tal to keep en­gaged in more than just a ‘tweet’ or a ‘like’ on Face­book. So I em­brace the pen and love it when my grand­daugh­ter sends me a let­ter or card from Feild­ing or my niece writes to me from Eng­land. JOYCE OWENS
