It served quite a purpose for the few years before the telegraph. The list of communication through history lands with our ability to skype, facetime, text, facebook…which has me thinking about the benefits of such technology.
Faces of family and friends draw us in; that, and the royal blue banner that resembles a postman coming to our door
We enter into other worlds, read hearts and minds, laugh, cry
We often”will” our words to morph into a hug to someone having a sunless day
We scroll and see the highs and lows, the silly and the sad
And at times it feels so strange, to feel the mix of the jovial tumbling amongst the bereaved
But this lesson is the one that reminds us– life is bigger than any one moment
Cheers, laughs, excitement and tears all spill out from the keyboard and into the heart of others
Quite miraculous. Who’s to say?
maybe these messages and “touches” have forged like the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.
…beauty into once barren, forgotten places
This beautiful letter; this “paper”, doused with ink; covered with the ramblings and thoughts that are so cherished…
is carried by the fastest pony express ever imagined
Any carrier of a message that spills grace and love among us, is special in my estimation
