I love postcards and I love letters. To me, the written word is much more personal and intimate. Writing from the heart is an art. It's a shame that more people don't make themselves vulnerable and put their thoughts and feelings onto paper to communicate. Writing letters and sending post cards is a way to leave an imprint in this world. It's creating history and a treasure for someone in the far future to discover and read. What a remarkable find, to be able to read about something so close to one's heart, to read about how a person lived or how much things cost. I want to leave my imprint. I want people to know that my life was/is good enough to write about.
I heard today that vulnerability is courageous. To write from the heart, one must tap into his/her vulnerability to make it real. That's what a life of happiness is all about.
