The idea of communication is an old one: We want to share our thoughts, wishes or feelings with others. Long distances, unviable efforts and the absence of courage caused us to fall back on traditional mailing in the past.
The world is changing, and therefore letters became an endangered species like public phones whose necessity is questioned more and more. Today, the only mail most of us receive consists of official notices or bills which are delivered by the postman who might become a rarity himself in the nearby future.
Most of the private communication has shifted – in the age of modern communication, messages are easily expressed on time in a pleasant way.
Whereas there is no doubt that contemporary media tremendously simplifies our life, the experience of opening an envelope which has been sent to us by somebody with the intention of showing affection is an irreplaceable moment of excitement.
