There is something deeply nostalgic to writing, and receiving, a Letter.
In today’s technologically connected world of “instant messages” and “instagrams” 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 intimate to holding the paper in your hands, knowing that some time in the not-too-distant past this very same paper was handled by your dear friend, family member or loved one.
It’s not surprising why some Letters are saved as a keepsake.
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 has arrived.
The Letter reminds us that sometimes we need to slow down and choose our words carefully. That when it comes to matters of the heart, “instant” is not always the best mode or method of communicating something deeply felt.
Some questions to guide your meditation:
- Is there something you need to tell someone, or yourself (i.e. “get something off your chest”)?
- Have you put off reaching out to somebody to share how you really feel?
- Can you find ways to “slow things down” or “unplug” in order to spend some quality time with yourself?
- If a recent message has “triggered” you, what might the real source(s) of your anger or frustration be?
