I want to thank everyone who donated to my kickstarter Letters 2020 Project! I’ve been writing a letter a day, religiously, since January 1st! My goal is to bring awareness to the lost of art of letter writing. I find that children these days don’t even know how to address an envelope! I have read articles about documenting our lives and although we do a lot of it on social media… that may not make it into the history of humanity. What I mean by this… is that found letters, even from one average person to another are treasured. Think about “myspace”–how much of that information was kept, is important and is there a hard copy anywhere? Social media comes and goes but a letter has the possibility of staying for a very long time… think cuneiform tablets and later, hieroglyphics–staying power! I also think a lot about data mining and how companies are getting rich off of the average person’s data. Nice thing about a letter… more than likely–the only people reading it is you the writer and the person you mailed it to. Isn’t privacy a refreshing concept?
I’m mostly writing about boring stuff… my day, my projects, my hopes and dreams and darkest fears… lol. If you still want to get on board to getting a letter and if I have one of the 366 date slots open… email me your address!
