Old Letters

Old Letters. Do you have any? I have a few. In this pink folder I have some letters from my parents and grandparents (deceased), from my husband before we were married and from my daughter’s grandmother. I also have some old family postcards from the early 1900s that have survived somehow to find their way into my possession.

I got out this packet of letters recently as I was writing an article on communication and I decided to focus on letters. Old letters. Memorable letters. Souvenirs of the soul.

One of the aspects of the Letters & Journals magazine will be old letters- famous, infamous, historical, personal, tragic, heartbreaking, inspiring. I can hardly wait!

    Thanks for the plug. Correspondence as memories is a great idea! And, I'm glad to hear that you were able to parlay a walk down memory lane into a submission concept. I'm looking forward to seeing the final product on paper.

    Yours in collaboration,

    I like the term "souveniers of the soul". That's a good way to describe old letters. Yes, I have some too.
