forgotten art

The hand written note is not something that has prospered in the digital age and it is good to know that it still exists.  There are days where it can be too easy to just fire off an email or a tweet without too much thought.  Follow Friday on twitter is popular but demands little thought, #love monday is a huge improvement but not yet so popular, but the written card is a treasure that I have found again.  This last few weeks I have been writing notes to people and the appreciation is immense.

The joy of the hand written note was evidenced last night as a contact of mine, the venerable Will Taylor shared a note he had received – it brought a tear to my eye.  The power of a timely note is so wonderful.  This forgotten art is thankfully still alive and kicking.
