It’s not art but it’s artful.
When was the last time you wrote a letter? Pen to paper, creating keepsakes that begin with dear you, or a casual hiya, or simply an I’ve missed you..
It’s not complicated but it’s truthful.
There’s something so precious and nostalgic about writing a letter, taking your time to calligraph, to make it pretty – or not, when you just need to share something with a special one, a piece of information that’s too important to waste time on calligraphy, and too personal to be shared in an e-mail.
It’s touching and it’s wistful.
I still write letters. Not as often as I would like to, but I still do. To my pen-friend in Czech Republic who after all these decades is more like a sister to me, quick unpolished drafts that she’ll know how to unscramble in order to come up with a very realistic solution to my never-ending troubles.
I still write (even though I haven’t for the longest time, regretfully so) to my beloved friend in the states, to talk about aspirations and inspirations, to discuss life and to indulge in the luxurious feeling that someone out there gets me without even having to explain.
I still and always will write in capital letters to my blood brother back in my home-town, not shouting but simply because it’s easier for him to read my impossible hand writing in capital letters without getting a headache. But then again, I always gave him headaches, so that’s that. We’ll discuss politics and religions and relationships and all the untouchable topics you only share with your chosen family. Because you know that even if you disagree, you’ll still be family and nothing can break those bonds.
It’s not practical but its faithful.
And I keep all their letters, carefully tucked into a box, torn apart, old and yellowish, infused with memories, tears of joy or sorrow, promises and reminders that this too shall pass, congratulations on small daily achievements and inspiration to keep going. It’s undescribable, remembering the impatience, when waiting for the other person to write back with answers to your questions, with a smile carved in ink to make you feel better and with a witty joke to lighten up everything from miles away.
It’s engaging and suspenseful.
These are the memories I cherish the most. Like precious gems.
