It’s easy to feel disconnected in the digital era. We’re so busy cross-linking to images and websites and profiles that the real world starts to feel less and less.
To the point where we go out into the world and are surprised by humans. And often forget our humanity in the exchange.
Instead of posting on someone’s digital wall, do it the old-fashioned way.
Write a hand-written note. A real, honest-to-goodness birthday card. Or congratulations or thank-you note. The kind you purchase from those endless racks of silly in the old-fashioned drug store.
Take a moment to browse and think about the person you’re sending it to. Walk to the register and pay for it, where you may even talk to a human being.
Take it home and fill it out. (Caution – handwriting is so alien nowadays you may want to actually practice your message on a notepad before committing to the store bought notion.)
When you’re done, address the envelope. Seal it and put an actual fifty cent stamp on it.
Total cost: less than five bucks.
Time commitment: As much as an hour!
In the process you will realize two things.
First, how far apart we’ve really drifted.
Second, how easy it is to be connected.
You’ll enjoy the whole thing from start to finish. You might even feel civilized. I promise.
