Who doesn’t love a good handwritten letter? It’s so rare these days with facebook, texting, & whatnot. Can we please go back in time and just write letters to each other to communicate again? There’s something so romantic about receiving something tangible that came from someone’s heart through their pen and onto paper.
Not too long ago, I came across a photo stream on instagram and found the desire to write flood over me once again. When I was still in college commuting on Bart everyday, I would write letters to myself. I still have the box of those in my closet. I am happy that the desire has returned and I look forward to writing again. I still write in my journal every night before I go to sleep, but I put no effort into it. That’s just a book full of work complaints and explaining how tired I am. I think step one for me should be to stop writing while I am sitting in bed at the end of the day!
If you have instagram, I think you should follow dear_corinne. Her letters are as beautiful as the message she is sending. Plus her photos are just plain lovely. She has a website too, but most activity is on instagram. A couple of her images below…beautiful, right?
