If you are lucky enough to get handwritten letters in today’s date, you have some really awesome karma in stock!
The Smell of Ink
The smell of ink rising out of handwritten letters is absolute nostalgia and brings back a thousand memories. There is a sweet bitter nuance which only you as a reading experience.

Until someone rustles with some news and feels like writing a letter to someone so distant in this electronically close world.
Decoding the handwriting
There is so much fun in trying to decipher what’s written. The crooked writing, or sometimes words are written like pearls in a string. Many a time wrong punctuations bring a smile on your face and make you imagine, how hilarious the situation is. Today with a crazy number of fonts such humor takes a back seat.
The sign at the end by the one who has written a letter is so evocative. The most emotional part of a letter is the signature at the end!
