writing desk

Do you remember a time when desks weren't covered in cords and giant computer screens? I'm not sure I do but I know such a time existed. It's almost rare to see a desk dedicated to writing, even if the writing consists of paying bills. Sometimes I get tired of all of the electronics regardless of how convenient they make my life. As I type these words, I'm wondering when it last was a I sent someone a handwritten letter. Maybe I need a penpal. Or maybe I just need to step away from the computer once a week. Either way, I know I need a desk like the ones above in my life. Paintbrushes and all please.
