    I'll second that. Among other things, reading that article made me feel better about being a dinosaur.

    And..third it here 👍🏻.

    I write letters when I can, and even illustrate the envelopes .
    It’s a very special thing to spend a couple of hours sometimes to send a letter to someone… one could say …a meditation .

    Two takeaways from the Tribune:
    (1) He wrote to an author and received a reply, rather than putting it off so long the author died before a letter was sent, and
    (2) Peter’s article refers to typed letters while the photo illustration shows female hands and a fountain pen.

    Robalone-meditation is a good description.
