Do people still write love letters?
I was just reading about the love letters of Richard Burton to Liz Taylor being published this month in Vanity Fair mag and I found even the few excerpt lines so touching, my eyes began to burn with tears.
Then I started to wonder if love letters are a lost art. In years to come will anyone have a box of "love e-mails or love-texts" hidden in a pretty box?
In fact I have found the concept of a love letter so compelling that I have decided to use it in my current WIP.
I wonder, when was the last time you received or wrote a love letter...on real paper, written with real ink?
What was the most touching love letter you have ever received and why?
If you have any love letters stashed around the house, I'd be thrilled if you would share a few lines from them.
May there always be romance in your life, <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

Susan regarding love letters
I was just asking myself the same thing not to long ago. Has the love letter died? The perfect paper and the scent? Do young women write our soldiers with perfumed paper and beautiful ink? Or is it all texts with abbreviations I can't keep up with-lol. The last "love letter" I received was from my middle grandson who wanted to come live with me as his parents would not let him "plug-in" (video games) as much as all the other kids "get to do". The letter was stock-full of praises of my character, generosity, flexibility, and my special consideration of him. These were in 8 year old words, but that was the jist of the letter with an avatar sticker and heart with an arrow. I treasure it. Little did he know, I used to ground his mother from television and the home phone. I didn't tell him--it's nice being the "good guy". The letter before that was really cards from a boy when I was 19. He sent one once a week. I had tons of cards. Each card with a little note. Would girls respond to love letters today--or think the guy was gay? I swear I don't understand kids today! Geese! I just sounded like my mother! Did you know "sick" means that something is really "decked out" or "cool"? *Sigh* *grin* Peace!
