Call me nostalgic, but sometimes I just really miss handwritten letters. Long-distance phone calls from a landline. Sing-alongs. You know, old-school things that make people feel connected. And I’m not alone. I talked to friends, writers, and other etiquette experts (some of their thoughts are included here) who also yearn for a return to forms of graciousness, kindness, and attention that have gone by the wayside. It’s stuff we easily can—and should!—do something 
about. And best of all, you don’t need fancy equipment. Not even your phone. (Especially not your phone.)
