While reading some notes on writing letters, I realised I made a major faux pas in thinking that the best letters are the longest, most detailed ones.
I think frequent lengthy letters are a bore, for they leave nothing to the imagination. Allow me to guess what’s going on in your life.
Have the decency to leave details out, that way, I can ask for them in my reply.
Sometimes, a simple “Thank you for a wonderful evening” can be more poignant than an essay on how your evening went.
