I talked today to my nephew in Iran and asked him
why does he not write to me more often, he said that
connection to the internet is very slow.
I told my nephew that back in my days
we also had very slow connection. ,
He can’t remember this
because he was young.
,Back in my days
we had only ADSL dialers
to connect to the internet.
It would take days and hours
for the website to load,
even with the most simple graphics yet
we managed to have communication,
meaningful communication despite
the slow connection that we had.

We used to write E-mail to one another.
No tiktoks, not videos, not even pictures,
we would write long letters
to one another,
old-school long letters.
It doesn’t take a lot of data connectivity
for the messages to go through.
I think E-mails are also better safety-
wise than using social media accounts
or instant messaging
. Let’s go back to old-school Pen Palship!
