Of course the same week we are supposed to write a letter, I drop my iPhone in water. The past few days I have been functioning without the ability to call, text, tweet, fb, or email from the comfort of my cell phone. Writing a letter really took me back in the past, since it was one of the forms of communication available to me this week.
Interestingly enough, I have enjoyed these few days without having my cell phone. I’ve felt a sense of freedom. Also, a letter allows so much more expression than a text message (even if now you can text emoticons). It doesn’t have to be within 160 characters, you can italicize, bold, underline, double underline! It is so much more expressive. Sometimes I think we all need that break from technology, and we need to get back in touch with not having to be completely in touch. (If that makes any sense at all)
