When was the last time you received a WRITTEN LETTER....for most of us this is truly a thing of the past.
I have a wonderful Aunt.....who still believes in the written word...Oh she writes me an e-mail or two....but every so often I get a little gift of correspondence in the mail.
I am ALWAYS so THRILLED TO RECEIVE IT AND TO RELISH IT'S CONTENTS. I'll grab a little cup of tea and go to my QUIET CORNER to savor her latest update on her life or the tales of children and grandchildren taking place in another part of the world.
"Our correspondences show us where our intimacies lie." There is something very sensual about the writing of a letter; pen to paper, words carefully thought out, finding the perfect card or stationary. Then dropping it in the Poste awaiting its arrival for its intended.
This is an act of a spiritual nature...this creativity put down and preserved.
Letters are like winged birds...flying from one house to another..flocks of ideas crisscrossing the country....and once opened a connection is made.
We realize we are NOT ALONE.
Hugs sweet friends,
