Of Holiday Traditions

Ghosts in my mailing list rest.

backstory: One of the old traditions we uphold in my family is that of sending relatives and family friends handwritten holiday greetings. As I go through my mailing list this season looking for postal addresses, I observe with great sadness that quite a number of people in my address book have died during the past few years, from various illnesses.

While it is sad to delete their contact details, thereโ€™s beauty in this. Because this act brings me some closure. More so, as I ponder how to deal with disappearance of some online friends from the internet; a topic worth exploring in the future.
