WHY HAND­WRIT­TEN MAT­TERS

Good (UAE) - - THE GOOD LIFE -

Sadly, hand­writ­ten is about to be added to the en­dan­gered list. To­day’s ro­mances and scan­dals hap­pen via SMS

or so­cial me­dia. Where’s the charm? Most of the great­est trysts and busi­ness deals have in­volved a hand­writ­ten let­ter

of love, apol­ogy or thanks. Eti­quette god­dess Emily Post (and prob­a­bly your mother too!) would agree 110 per­cent.

When some­thing is hand­writ­ten it signi es a lot of time and con­sid­er­a­tion: rst there’s the de­ci­sion of what kind of paper to use, then the ques­tion of the colour of ink and, nally, ex­actly which com­bi­na­tion of words will get the right point across. A well thought out let­ter

will be tucked away in a night­stand drawer to be kept for­ever and prob­a­bly

reread by nosy grand­chil­dren years later. So pop over to your lo­cal printer or sta­tioner for the right paper, dust your

favourite pen o , and get writ­ing.
