  •  My Family Members Are Letter Writers (9+ / 0-)

    just like I think I post a lot here, their expression of what they did with letters. My dad wrote, by hand, me a letter weekly from 1987 when I went away to college until 1995. Then he started to send emails.

    I mean every day, every single day I get an email from my dad. Just a few sentences, saying what is going on in his life.

    I recall once in the late 80s I wrote him back.

    He sent me the letter back marked up with my grammatical issues. I kind of "hated" him for that.

    Then a few years ago I got his 600 page Dissertation. The copy given to his father. The darn thing was dedicated to him. He marked it up in red pen.

    That was when I realized sometimes you are your father .....

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.
