The blurted voice rarely muses or ventures the way the written voice does, tending more toward instrumental than exploratory purposes. When I receive a paper letter, I like to spread out the pages and take in the whole – as can the writer. When I compose or read a long email, I find the screen cuts off the flow and causes me to get lost when I have to scroll through digressions. There is usually more depth and cohesion with writing on paper, arising chiefly from the freedom to wander away from the original point and yet be able to find the way back. Wendy Lustbader M.S.W.
For those free during the day, please join Rev. Fiona and DLL Pamela for an afternoon of tea, treats and treasured letters. Handwritten letters speaking the language of the soul have become the rarest of treasures. Those that are saved may speak again. Wendy Lustbader M.S.W.
Bring your letters from the past and share why you saved it. So many stories can be unpacked from a piece of paper and ink or a special card. Fiona will share excerpts from letters that continue to resonate years after writing.
