              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...

"This is fact"
Every night has an end,
Every time has an end,
Every journey has an end,
But the life you are living has no end
Life is eternity, believe me No end of life, You are born in a magical womb of mother and your end of the body turns Into ashes that ashes has your life. It exists in every place it travels and make of it to another body as a rebirth to a life.
You are "endless life after death".
-Chirayu!.

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.

     MY FIRST NOTEBOOK

My first true notebook was my writing journal which had been gifted to me by my uncle. I was 9 at that time and it was my first ever friend and companion for life.
One of my first poems was 'THERE WAS A TIME WHEN FRIENDS I HAD NONE'. I remember, I was a typical introvert, asocial kind of a person. My classmates used to make fun of me and my appearance. As a result I was alone for some years of my school life. In fact, it was in class 8, when I was 13... I made some true friends who have been with me till now. As we grow up, a realisation hits us that only a few people love us for no reason, they love us without the conditions apply asterick (*), other than my family t...

I wrote a letter
so I feel better
I can't explain
How ideas rain
I am winning
As I am thinning
As my words
Fly like birds
From my mind
To suddenly find
Their place
After my chase
In a line by line
Which is fine!

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...

Passion for me comes from the millions of expressions and exchanges of ideas that power the lettrs network.  Wow!

We are passionate not for what has been but for the miracle of what has yet to be.  Thank you all for giving me the passion of your letters every week.

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...

Ciao
Non ho idea del perché io voglia avere a che fare con le lettere.    So che mi piacciono e che c'è qualcosa di magico nello scrivere a qualcuno su carta.
Nient'altro

Ciao

Quoting my feelings into words means making peace with my past. I bleed the wounds he gave me, into my words because that's what heals my pain. That's how i feel better, at ease, and at peace. That's how i let it out, so i could let it go.
It's because of him that i scribble. He gave me so much to remember, I'll keep writing all my life, and would yet be unable to vent out the whole of it. I know i can't have enough of him, or us. I can't ever letter enough. I'll always have so much so say, but only in the form of my pocket full of words.
Yet just one thing i wish for, if only i could word all that i feel!

Gaurangi Gupta.

PEACE FOR ALL

I like to write, its kind of a fix
My mind holds so much junk
It gets hard to think

I write when i am bored
Or when the words spill out my mind
Like coffee on the table
Theres a reading
Between the lines.

DOES LETTRS PAY YOU?

A friend asked me why I'm always plugging Lettrs. He wondered if they paid me to do so. My answer was, "Yes. Lettrs pays me."

They pay me with a CEO and staff who work hard and provide a friendly, supportive, and personal presence. They pay me by giving me a place to be truly creative and share my voice & vision. I am paid by the insanely creative, beautiful, heartfelt, emotional,  hilarious Lettrs that all of you share.

I want Lettrs to last. This is a unique place. There is nowhere else like it in a social media world that can often be hollow, mean, and lonely.

So, yeah. I'm paid. The very least I can do is help spread the word about this beautiful community.  I kn...
