When was the last time you received a hand written letter from someone? Before you answer, as lovely as your Grandparents may be, they do not count. The point that I’m trying to make is that the great gestures of romance started with the older generations. With the rapid progression of technological advancement and communication, we often forget to turn off the “smart” devices and sit down to have an organic account of our day. Handwritten letters are a timeless gift in their simplicity and thoughtfulness. Who says it has to be exclusive to cinema? Break out a piece of paper and a nice pen, preferably ballpoint, and tell that special someone how you feel. Even if that someone is yourself with a new diary entry.
