              The Ethos of lettrs
If we are we unable to take just a minute to sign a letter or thought for something or someone we care about, then what do have a minute for? I started this network of kindred spirits with the simplest of rules; you literally had to take time to write, with a one minute minimum before delivery or publishing.  Did you know it takes the human mind an average of 58 seconds to complete an original thought or process a full emotion?  Everything prior to that is reflex, reaction and impulse. That is the land of chats, snaps and tweets.  

lettrs is the network designed for reflection, not reflex, of hand signed communications actually designed to last.  It is perh...

Dear Drew Bartkiewicz,

The thing I'll miss the most is knowing that the guys in the locker room are all we had. There were no trades or cuts for us. So we knew that we had to win with what we had and that made us fight for one another that much more! Great question!

Ps I love seeing Anthony up in the corner for my stamp! That's awesome!

Dear Drew Bartkiewicz,

Thank you for reading my post.

I think about LETTRS is a unique platform. I like. especially stamps and doodles.

I write what could not write on Twitter or Facebook. Like a "Message in bottle".

Rich blue waters show a deep search for the words we thirst for, lurking deep beneath the coldest currents and provoking our irresistible desires to swim - and die - down there, frozen but found once that secret light appears.

Dear Drew Bartkiewicz,Dear Drew Bartkiewicz,

Happy Friday! My how opening the door lettrs has revealed this whole new world. It's like finding your people. I've always been a "wordie". The power and beauty of words spoken and written is vastly important to me. I never realized there was a "hidden valley" of like minded people that appreciated all the beauty in perfectly poised thoughts, dreams, and creativity becoming art on paper. I love this place! Everyone I have had the pleasure of interacting with has been incredibly encouraging and kind. I've been writing most of my life however a few months ago while sitting alone by a fire in my back yard something within me changed. I had not put pe...

One of the best discoveries on lettrs is this:  what starts as most personal can become the most universal, if we stick with our instincts and intuitions to do what's right.

With over 2 millions letters delivered and 700 million minutes written the medium of the personal letter, the original, has been reimagined with all of you.

Mothers make you feel taller than you are.
Mothers help you climb the highest stairs.
Mothers take the trips you most needed to take.
Mothers laugh even if nothing much is left to laugh about.
Mothers see the bright side of you.
Mothers give when nothing is asked.
A mother remains when all else seems lost.   A mother is where we begin and end...

Hello staff,
How are you all? I am writing you a letter because I am person who writes lots of letters and about whatever comes to my mind. So, I am writing you a letter because I have been looking at the engage section of lettrs for days, and waiting for writing prompts. But there has been no change. I am sorry if I sound obnoxious, but I am suffering from a severe case of writer's block. And to overcome it, I have nagging and bugging my husband to give me prompts.
So, my point is that you should update the prompts and engagements more often. And maybe have sections like 'engage photo' with a new picture everyday, 'music memory', 'start a story with ...', write a haiku, write an abecedarian...

Friends.  The reason for lettrs.

I learned that the TV show "Friends" remains one of the top shows ever in syndication, along with "Seinfeld," another show about friends going nowhere but being everywhere in life's tiny moments.

To the thousand of friends I have made over the years in building lettrs, this one is for you!  Write a letter to a friend today and make a message that lasts.  Be indelible! The way friends are...

After thousands of steps through the dark city streets, no longer knowing where his true north was, he felt as if he has walked in one big circle. His life seemed to arrive at the same place it began.  Had he taken the right path, stumbled to the right steps, listened to the correct instincts?

Then he ascended a magnificent hill he had never seen before, though he swore he had dreamed it a thousand times.  Soon, below his feet were city lights - the same ones he had walked for years - that mapped the exact pattern as the Stars above.  He was home and sensed his real journey in service to others was about to unfold...

Dear Drew,

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to you for taking time to read my letters & liking them. It really means a lot to me.

There is a immense pleasure in writing & what platform can be better for self-expression than "lettrs" where you not only get acknowledged but it amazes me how pals are conjoined to the ONE earth & not the different countries, religion etc. & i love to read their masterpieces too.

Congratulations for this magnum opus platform & thank you for making us a part of it.

Regards
Sagarika.
