Sorry that my email replies tend to be slower in Modern times compared to my Social Media responses. In the past, I would take time to write snail mails before the technology of emails came about and would bring a bulk of letters to the post office to stick stamps on envelopes with hand written names and addresses. From hand written mails, I advanced with printing a well crafted family newsletter where I would hand write a couple of lines of personal messages only. I could find a window of time once only every year end to do this to make sure I could stay connected with my family members and friends spread out in different continents around the world. In short I am better at sending bulk mails out than replying any mail coming to me. When social media technology came in particularly facebook, it really was a breakthrough technology to make it so simple to find friends and also to allow one to keep track of another's life without having to send a mail of words to all the family and friends out there by batch once a year. I like to note that for all the family members I had sent out mails to, only a handful would reply to me and for those who did, it would most likely be the batch mail that they would send to everyone each year too and I would be included in that list.
I guess replying snail mails or even emails seem to require more effort as one may like to respond to what another said or answer a question posed by the sender and that would definitely take more time than just shooting off 'duplicate batch mails' once a year. People like me especially who take time to think and compose what I like to say with the detailedness to make sure especially if I was answering a question that I wish to respond with clear and accurate words as that is all I have to communicate with the other, using only words.
The new year continues with active branch missionary work in the Kuala Lumpur branch of the Church.
A TalkLane interview at the KL Marriott with our special guest Tomoko from Japan enlightened me about the Japanese culture which had for a long time been a mystery to me!
A treat to be online with my grand-daughter Leah to celebrate her 1st birthday and to test my gift for her to develop big vision like the Universe!
