How long since you wrote a letter? Received a letter? A proper one, not some tedious thing that requires action, but a hand-written, heartfelt letter.
The last real letters that popped into my letterbox came after my gorgeous furry girls died and they were letters of condolences and as I read them I could feel the doggy love coming from each person and they were comforting and reassuring. How grateful I was for them.
Instead mail comes, computer-generated and demanding, and it piles up on the hall table because. Because everything.
It’s Big Word of Mouth’s second Grand Slam on Tuesday, July 10. The theme is LETTERS. The storytellers are all Slam winners who will tell their five-minute true story on the theme. Your job, as as storylover and audience, is to vote on the best, the one that resonated with you the most.
Have you got a ‘letter’ story? Maybe you’ll contribute something as an anonymous comment from the floor – in response to this sentence starter…Tell us about THAT letter…
Here’s my response to Tell us about THAT letter..…There is one letter I have written, over and over. Maybe a dozen times. And each time I write it, I hide it for a few days, pull it out again after that hibernation and then destroy it. I have never send it and now, all these years later, I have no need to write it again.
