Amicus & Ascensio
Have you ever read, such as in Pride and Prejudice and Anna Karennina, how gentlepersons would invite people over to dinner, often strangers, and that was how they got to know one another? They would also play parlor games. And drink brandy.
Sometimes, strangers would even introduce themselves via handwritten letter.
The blogosphere is great for that; well-written correspondence and introductions…
But, now that I am growing-up, I miss having a family home with a dining room.
