I write letters to everyone because I enjoy it. Writing to me seems far more personal than emails or blogs. Plus I have a forever keepsake and so do they AND they took the time to sit down and write to me. So I do the same for all my friends.
"Tell me, Mademoiselle, does he know that I see his letters?" "Never in the world! He would be angry and would never write to me if he thought so. Does he write to you? Never a line. Does he send you a message? Never a word. It is because he loves you, poor fool, and is trying to forget you, since you are not free to listen to him or to belong to him."

I've Started Writing Letters Again, and It's Awesome. Letters make me feel like I am whispering to a friend on the riverbank on a hot summer day, the air alive with the smell of bay laurel and the water so still that it looks like glass.
In my middle school years I had a pen pal in Cuba and we would write to each other very often. Now in Cuba theres internet and emailing and stuff but back when I was younger it had to be done by letter. We would communicate in spanish which was really helpful for me because I learned and improved my writing skills.
