It’s been ages since I had a snail mail pen pal. I used to write with a lot of people when I was a kid, but as an adult it’s been mostly limited to random letters to you and other friends. Since most of us communicate online anyway, we’ve usually covered any news long before the letter finally arrives.
The other day I was helping my son write letters to family members he doesn’t see very often and I felt an urge to write a letter too. It was time to get a good old fashion pen pal again. A quick search online and I found Satoko in Japan. I received her first letter yesterday and she included some cute notes with it.
I really enjoy connecting to random people around the world, makes it feel not so big after all.
