Letters, letters everywhere.
Can you remember when your email contained more messages from family and friends than spam? When was the last time your mailbox was just that – a mailbox – instead of a bill box, a catalogue box or a bulk mail advert box?
Yeah. Me neither.
2017 is a year of focusing on writing more, running more ( must work on that) and photographing more. A writing idea of late has really caught fire in my mind. Publetters, the resurgence of the ancient art of letter writing while enjoying a brew in a local pub. Food, beer and writing, a recipe for wildly creative writing.
Because I am an ambitious fool, my letters are being sent to the highest members of society and to those just about eye level. All shall get equal candor within my letters. I invite my social media friends to share their address so I may write a letter to them.
Letters sent in January:
January 3rd: Birthday cards to Belgium, Monaco and GB Royal families.
January 10th: Letter to President-elect Trump
January 12th: Wedding Anniversary letter sent to Netherland Royal couple.
January 24th: Letters to Theresa May, PM of GB, and the newly sworn in President Trump. Also, a letter was sent to a FaceBook Friend.
January 30th: Birthday cards to Liechtenstein, GB, Luxembourg, and Norway Royal Families.
January 31st: Letter sent to Secretary General of the UN and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley.
Of course I will share replies as I receive them. To date, I received a nice reply from Charlene of Monaco.
I have discovered a peaceful sense of disconnect from the digital world as I write these letters. A pause from the 24/7 updates on social media platforms. It is with amazement that I discovered the ease of stringing together thoughts and writing them down on paper. With no distractions, my focus narrows to my thoughts, my favorite fountain pen, and a blank sheet of paper. And like the Spice, the words must flow. And they do.
Stay tuned for more Publetter updates.
