How to be idle part 2 - Writing a letter

What is more pleasurable than sitting at a computer free desk, pen to paper and writing a letter to a friend. Could be fountain on hand printed, or felt-tip on lined paper - it really doesn't matter. Letters take time because they are so much more permanent than a dashed email and yes, they show your state of mind and who you are completely.

There is more pleasure to be had even after you have written the perfect two pages. Folding, stuffing, sealing and then popping it into the letterbox are lovely feelings. The loveliest though, is the pleasure of opening it and reading it at the other end. Just such a lovely thing to do all round really.
