On Our Sleeves: Letter

What does the letter mean to you?

Dear someone… Letters are one of the oldest ways to connect…to feel associated and nurtured. With each stroke of the pen or clack of the keyboard, it’s a way to say, “thinking of you.” Sometimes we write letters to ourselves in a diary or journal as a method to sort through our thoughts, to think on paper.

A letter is a thoughtful investment in someone’s time and feelings. It carries a little extra meaning. In today’s hyper-connected world, it’s an opportunity to slow down. If you could write a letter to someone who’s been a support to you, what would it say?
