Dear Drew Bartkiewicz,
Hello Sir! I'm so delighted looking at your likes on my letters . Thank you so much for sparing your precious time in reading my posts. Thanks a ton for your support.
Dear lettrs Staff,
I admire your commitment towards your job. You have never failed to respond to any of my letters. You've been ever willing to solve any issue I have brought to your notice. I appreciate your kindness. May the Lord bless each one of you working towards making this place a home away from home for people like me. Thank you!
My motivation has always been the possible more than the probable.
I have seen too many tiny miracles in my midst to think otherwise.
I've always been a "write it out" person.
But I got so lost in a world of " Say it out before it's too late. "
Ever been judged for sharing your thoughts on how everything made you feel that you were left with no option but to remain silent?
Ever been labeled as a "complicated person" because you feel everything so intensly that you stopped opening up to people?
My lungs were collapsing from the growing pressure of all the words that I wasn't saying.
I've been searching for a place where I could hear all the words that have been hiding in the darkest corners of my soul.
I guess I've finally found a place where my thoughts don't mind being exposed.
Heartbreak, tragedy, pain were ...
I pen this letter this morning with an upbeat heart, a spirited keypad and a penpal network like none other in the world. We are listening!
Thanks to the many comments I received on how to make lettrs lighter, faster and easier for powering letters meant to last forever.
Your friend in lettrs,
I find myself addicted to lettrs because I am addicted to reading about the complexity and the beauty of the human condition on this app.
lettrs is a unique messaging platform for people of consequence, writing about the trials and the joys of living in a modern society.
This special place invites people to be "an original"- and yet at the same time to be connected to the vast tapestry of words happening across the world. Perhaps one day in the future people will look back at this mark in time as the beginning, of letters as a second language.
I am proud to be a part of this.
If I counted the hours that my husband has dedicated to this revolution in communications it would add up to five years of his life in the pursuit of messages that actually matter.
He falls asleep at night with an iPhone in his hand to listen, learn and improve a tiny lettrs place where the average person dedicates 3.5 minutes to letters for their own lives.
The power of the pen! We fell in love with letters and now hope people find love through letters of their own.
LETTRS AND TAGGING - A CLOSER LOOK.
Lettrs , as the name speaks, this app is unique in its own ways.
One such uniqueness here I have come through is tagging.
Unlike other applications and social media, here tagging people with comments or letter doesn't work. Some may feel it is necessary, but this makes different. You want someone to see something you wrote, take time to write to them. That sounds personal, doesn't it? I like it.
Tagging your with the related words, take them to the appropriate feeds and so, many readers can read, like and relate to it, and also will the get their views from many. As simple as that, works tag.
HOW TO TAG
From the website, once you...
To letters staff,
I really don't know you reply, comment and appreciate all over here but I want to thank you for mine. :)
I just started writing and it become more addictive then Facebook. It's great to feel that someone else is having more hope, more pain and more difficulties in life then mine, so I should be happy rather then complaining about. And you always managed to be part of someone's dark giving them faith and to wait for right time.
May God loves you more and more for being you.
Today I had an Uber driver in Atlanta. From Ethiopia and has lived in the US for over 33 years.
He told me he wanted to keep learning and asked if I would tell him things, anything. That my experiences would be meaningful to him. Where do you start. What would he understand. So I started with my favorite foods and asked of his. Those from Ethiopia. Where he finds the ingredients in Atlanta. Which are the best Ethiopian restaurants in Atlanta? His favorite Southern foods. Did he follow baseball and why.
What does America mean to him and his dreams. He said here his family can do or be anything. My learning hour passed quickly as we said goodbye
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...
To be able to write is not just a talent or hobby.
You're blessed with the power that can bring a change
And with every power comes a responsibility, its your responsibility to use it for good.
Thank you Denice Rinks, artist and letter writer, for gracing us with the new "angelic" collection of lettrs paper that will power the more inspirational words of our lives.
You are an original, in every sense of the word, and your art will inspire letters for generations to come. This bold experiment to make messages matter is strengthened by your work. Be indelible, in word and deed.
So how you do find peace against an enemy who only seeks our death, and the death of our collective ideals of freedom, love and civilization? You lock arms with other peace loving people and fellow civilized societies, then relentlessly kill every son of a bitch who aims to destroy what is good, decent and righteous about the upright human condition. ISIS not a religion, it is death, and I choose their death over those of innocent souls - of all faiths - who strive to live in peace.
Peace through strength; concerts are fine, too. Adios ISIS. We choose to fight for peace. Targets are now on your tiny little backs from more countries than you imbeciles can count.
First of all, a hearty Thank You, for developing such a wonderful platform.
'lettrs' it speaks for itself... Letter writing just an art, probably the most intimate way of communication was just getting lost in the pages of the book called 'Digitization of Communication of Civilization'. Thank you, for bringing it back, in a completely elegant way, making us revisit those old chapters in digitized form, all over again. May be 'lettrs' is the museum of this most personal form of writing.
Not only this, it's simply a writer's den, a showcase for all budding & aspiring writers, and mostly the window to the soul of a person's voice, including mine.
All I can say, 'lettrs' is...
Your artwork as our newest paper brings a bold and beautiful dimension to letter writing, one that inspires!
Thank you for the inspiration of your work that intersects beauty and faith to a vision of humanity that truly stirs my soul. I can feel your art as much as see it.
I have no doubt millions of words will become lasting stories thanks to your spirit. You have a gift and it is now for all the world to enjoy.
