Sometimes words need to be seen and not heard so you know that they’re not sugar coated, twisted by fervor. True words pushed onto paper, mulled over and contemplated, can hold much more value than empty and rushed breaths, which push forth words in haste. The of writing of letters mediates the brash and irrational tendency of vocal lamentations. This person took time to choose the way they needed to convey the message inside their heads. Their hearts take aim at the mind to force the hand to write what can only be said with careful thought and attention to effect.
Of so utter importance one took pen to paper in order to preserve their words. Words of love and encouragement, of sorrow and sadness, of reflection and proclamation. The labor they bore was for the sake of the other. So cherish letters and note, both happy and sad, for they memorialize the truth of that moment, no matter brief or how bad.
