You've Got Mail.

allowed me to reacquaint myself
with the beauty of snail mail.

Sealing the envelope - feels so once and for all.
Sticking the stamps on - praying they won't fall off.
Shoving the parcel into the post box -
there, you've lost all control.

And then there's the waiting.

There's something almost romantic about the whole thing.
(Is that why housewives have affairs with the mailman?)

Suddenly e-mails seem really boring.

Is it any wonder how
the faster time flies?

If I've learnt anything from all this,
it's if we all slowed down just a little,
we just might live longer.
