Sending The Letter available here
The desire to connect is so strong within us. There was a time before email, telephones and telegraphs, when writing a letter was the only way to keep connected with a loved one who was far away. You may have had to wait weeks or even months for your letter to arrive at its destination let alone to have your loved ones reply. We are so far from that now - and yet the hunger to keep relationships alive and communication open remains a challenge.
Sometimes I feel like we are just bumping into each other, unable to share our true selves. Whether it is our lack of courage or lack of language - I am not sure. Perhaps we are not fully awake to who we are ourselves, so we are not able to share in a clearer way with each other. Perhaps sitting down to write a letter is a ritual that could be worked back into our lives. Maybe taking time to do this simple act could bring new life to some of the key relationships in our lives that have begun to slip into forgetfulness.
