I hope you had a good week.
I was overwhelmed by digital communication again this week. (It seems to happen to me quite often.) As I struggled through a maelstrom of email my wandered off to another pace. A place where I made choices and had a time to read what I chose to when I chose to. It was a comforting place.
I guess I'm more old fashioned than I thought. Perhaps I like certain esthtic sensations...
Digital touches, attempts at communication, quasi-connections are controlling (not ruling) the world. What do I mean?
e-coupons (by various companies),
online dating profiles,
and probably other things I haven't thought of or missed.
Working within the parameters of the e-world I published my book, "Friday Musings" in December. However I am setting it up for print-on-demand because I prefer something I can hold in my hands when I am reading.
In this digital world I find myself longing for and needing the sensory contact of a real piece of paper. Here are a few examples of the things I enjoy touching and feeling;
1) Birthday cards
2) Thank you cards
4) Direct mail letters (properly address to me) (Yes, I have a thing about direct mail. I like it. I write it.)
How about you?
Do you miss the feeling of a book? Isn't it great to hold a book in your hands?
Do you miss the feeling of a card in the mail? Isn't it great to hold and display a card you got in the mail?
Thank you for making the time and taking the time to read this.
All the best yours,
