Have you ever sent a letter to someone who influenced you, by sending naturally, a genuine hand-written discourse speaking of your shared interests? Many a historic relationships between gentlemen began this way. I have not as I have not yet been acquainted with such a persons with whom I feel I could have satisfactory discourse for such a candid thing.

I once wrote James Randi telling him how much I've enjoyed his work but I'm a bit old for that now.

I think it'd be nice to have a penpal who I could show my unregulated emotions to. I have others, even some that have have seen me under stress, but no one that would be comfortable being historic with.

I have not, for my handwriting is indecipherable, and choose to spare the recipient the hassle of reading my atrocious penmanship.

I'm still looking for a calligraphy book since I have some markers laying around.

Mind if I write you?

I've emailed Richard Stallman several times but never took the time to hunt down his address. A man like that would probably take caution to anyone who discovered his address anyways.

Did he ever write back?

I recently bought some stationary with the hopes of writing to some friends. But alas I forget I have very few. Even fewer who would be willing to write back and forth with me. I'll write to any of you gentlemen as foolhardy as that sounds.

I'll write you a letter tonight, or finish it tomorrow morning and send it out asap. It'll be from James.

I should have checked back sooner but I stopped checking regularly after a couple weeks, sorry.

I should tell you, I never got your letter.

I'm gonna assume that's not your real address and you're trying to pull a prank on someone. If not, you should be more careful about where you post your address.

Anyway, I write letters a lot. I've always thought it would be fun to write other anons, but I can't figure out a means of address sharing that doesn't just sound like a terrible idea. Maybe a PO box, but even that could be a little risky.

There are some mail forwarding services that allow for "anonymous" letter exchange.

I am an active pen pal writer and I have yet to write to someone high-profile. However I used to be close friends with a well-known electronic artist when he was still starting out, as we used to be bedroom producers. Now he's touring around and all yet I haven't contacted him closely for a long time.

There is nobody I could send something like that to without them thinking I'm super weird.

Maybe my grandparents but they're super dead.

I was in the process of writing one such letter to Steve Ditko when he died. Not one of those obnoxious spiderman letters people would send, but one showing appreciation for the ideas put fourth in his independently published works and how they had influenced my thinking. I had put the letter off for some time before finally deciding to pick it up again and then two days later the news of his death broke. My advice, if you're gonna send one of these letters, don't wait.
