…went out of fashion most places, what feels like ages ago, long away in the past.
Most of us do not receive handwritten letters any longer, but a short time ago, lucky me! I got one from a friend from teen-age times, wonderful!
Reading it touched me… But I had to find the “right time and energy” to answer, and yesterday I finally did.
How to explain oneself and one’s life after so many years? No problem! Like in those “old days”, the empty page opened and words were created from a deep deep warm place inside myself, and they rolled and rolled down until it was finished…..I had forgotten how it felt: it felt good and strong and intimate and true.
I came to consider…
My handwriting, energy and concentration (or if you want let go and open), my Heart and the time dedicated to the letter, all those “gifts”… given to a paper to be received by someone… an old friend… Investment of… for a human purpose…Important! A gift of energy!
A humble, simple and beautiful experience, alive again….:)
No wonder we still use it in “personal development” or in “therapy”… 🙂
The price of the sending was another story, horrible high, but what do do? Our world has changed, and we have changed, has it? Have we?
