041. The Emotional Legacy of Letter Writing

041. The Emotional Legacy of Letter Writing

We're indulging in a bit of nostalgia and reflection on the fading art of letter writing. Join us as we recount childhood memories of writing to our grandparents and explore the unique charm of handwritten correspondence.

We want to hear from you, too! Have you recently found a bundle of old letters with stories and memories tucked between the lines? Will you join us in putting pen to paper? We also dive into the potent emotions tied to letters, from the joy of receiving personal mail to the glimpses of history letters offer.

Rediscover with us the power of the pen as we bond over shared and personal experiences, read published correspondences from notable figures, and grapple with the digital age's effects on this timeless tradition. So, let's reflect, laugh, and maybe inspire each other to pick up a stamp once more on this episode of "Of Sound Mind and Spirit."


The Lost Art of Letter Writing: "Because writing a letter to someone requires thought and silence. And in a way, we move through life at 1000 miles an hour now, it's so much easier to shoot them a text or a social media message, but by sitting down and taking pen in hand and thinking out loud, what you would tell them if you were face to face with them is a whole different way of communicating." - Shelly

WE WANT TO KNOW:  In what ways do you think letter writing can still be relevant in today's fast-paced, digital world, and how might it benefit younger generations?

How do you think personal and family history can be preserved through letters, and have letters ever given you a deeper insight into a family member’s life?
