i agree. i wish we could hand write them and mail them back and forth. we could do it and then scan them in and post them here.
mine today would say:
hey! things here are going really really great. i love my new city, but i sometimes wish you lived here. or sometimes i wish the coasts weren't so far away from each other. how are you? how's life?
do you remember the first time we met? i can't remember the name of the bar, but i met you, and i think you were with rana and tom that night. i remember shortly after going to a party with silver coated walls and thought to myself, "wow, this is exactly where i want to be, and in a few years we will all be such close friends and i can't wait for that." within a couple months you spent the night at my house after a party and rana got jealous because you stayed in my bed. [insert here that this was only a friend sleepover, a true beginning of a real life friendship] i remember the days that i used to spit goldfish and laugh, i'm pretty sure i was drunk. i remember the days that we had a writing group and we would all just sit around supporting each other. some really amazing one liners came out of that time. i remember the zine we did. i guess that was the beginning of all of this. do you remember talking to me about buying a stapler that would be long enough to reach the center of the pages? why don't we use staplers anymore? and copy machines. and typewriters. and pens.
i miss the days without technology too, sometimes, and maybe what i meant when i made you that patch was that - someday i will miss writing you letters.
miss you and love you, can't wait to see you soon!
