Dear Grief

“I’ll write to you. A super-long letter, like in an old-fashioned novel”
Haruki Murakami

I believe in the power of a handwritten letter. A keyboard is effective for capturing words before they fly away. But, moving a pen across a piece of paper gives mind and heart a richer expression.

Today was a day for letters. Some of them straight into my journal so that my soul could have its say. And others into envelopes with beautiful stamps to send on their way.

Whether you deliver a letter or not, tending to your correspondence provides a place to recognize the reality of a situation, to say what needs to be said, and to take the time it takes to formulate words.

A letter can be for you or for them. Mailed, tucked away in a journal or run through the paper shredder. All the options. All the space.

I hope you tend to your correspondence. Say what you need to say.  Write until you find it.

Write until you find it


BE in your life,
