In a time when almost all communication is done through email, text messaging, Twitter and FB – the handwritten note has never felt more deliberate or more dear.
But a handwritten note is rare.
According to the U.S. Postal Service people get one personal letter every two weeks.
Writing a personal note or a letter is an invitation to express ourselves in our own particular way; perhaps no other style of communication is quite so good for this purpose.
Plus, writing things down is transformational – and the act of sending a message byway of another – delivery promised (snow, rain, or heat) – is nearly shamanistic – and definitely a sweet act of grace.
PLAY OF THE DAY
When was the last time you sat down and hand-wrote a letter – simply unraveling your thoughts and making your wishes known?
Next time you think about sharing a quote or rushing off a late night meditation through social media – consider slowing it down with some paper and ink – and if you’re so inclined play it forward by including something extra, something special…
a poetic stanza
a cheeky story
a rough guide
or just a good ol’ fashion, ‘thinking of you kid’.
– No matter what –
the handwritten alternative
penned from love (I heart you so hard)
blessed with hugs and kisses (xo)
rocks your karma…
