Through this app, I've typed an unprecedented amount of words to convey feelings I've never been able to express before...
I love the idea of this app and its creation is commendable.
I remember back in 80's I used to write real mail made out of paper & pen with stamps and such.
The only time I become impatient is when I see the notification of her letter arriving...
Getting a digital letter feels like Christmas. Especially when the opposite pours their hearts content, while putting in effort to learn and understand you as well.
Without realizing, I got the “Serious writer” stamp for achieving 100 sent out letters...
These days we were unable to stop exchanging letters, I learned a lot about where he lives, his culture and his people even from the smallest thing.
I even woke up as early as 5am in the morning, to reply his letter, so that we could utilize every hour of the day, and make 2 cycles within the 24 hours!
I related so much since I just had a "what if" moment then and was feeling rather melancholic.
I have made two best friends that I will never forget nor lose contact with.
And I was able not only to befriend people from a different country than mine, which is Argentina, but also with some people who speak my same language, Spanish, and who are close to me, in near cities.
