Blog Tour: Day 3 with Tim VanSant

Today Tim VanSant hosts Day 3 of the Piper’s Reach Blog Tour.

He asks us about the differences between instant and delayed gratification in writing, the difference between seeing it now and having to wait for the putt-putt-putt of the postie’s motorbike, followed by the inevitable squeal of brakes.

…different experiences can alter our perception and experience of time. Pain/discomfort is one of the greatest distorters of time…  Jodi

Writing letters tempers the need for instantaneous gratification. Adam

Letter writing is intimate. It’s a personal, shared experience between the writer and the reader, not a public tweet or Facebook status update. Adam

I see letter writing as an antidote to the fast paced, interconnected lifestyle we are attuned to living now. There is an intimacy and efficacy absent in email, which lives in letters. Jodi
