There is something deeply touching (and nostalgic) to writing, and receiving, a Letter.
In today’s technologically connected world of social media and IMs there’s something refreshingly sweet about reading words written by a human hand, seeing the stops and starts of pencil or pen marks as they dance across the page.
There’s also something deeply “tangible” to holding the paper in your hands, feeling the texture of it with your fingertips knowing that some time in the not-too-distant past this very same page was handled by your dear friend, family member or beloved.
Given this tactile (and intimate) quality to getting a Letter it’s not surprising why some are saved as keepsakes.
But there’s another aspect to receiving a Letter… the impatience of waiting for an expected message to arrive. And the frustratingly one-sided nature of the conversation which doesn’t allow for any immediate response, not to mention the frustration of trying to decipher sloppy or bad penmanship once your Letter finally arrives.
All of this highlights why the Letter has arrived on your doorstep today. The message is clear — sometimes it’s best to slow down and delay replying to a text message, email or IM. Though technology makes it easy to communicate in real time, there are times when the best course of action is to pause and reflect carefully before sending a response. Any such “timeout” allows you to choose your words carefully.
Remember, when it comes to matters of the heart “instant” is not always the best mode or method for communicating something deep, profound and true.
Some questions to guide your meditation:
- Have you put off reaching out to somebody to share how you really feel?
- Is there something you need to tell someone, or yourself (i.e. “get something off your chest”)?
- If a recent message has “triggered” you, what might be the real source(s) of your anger or frustration?
