Interesting stories about Love Letters and Letter Writing October 30, 2009

So we come across some interesting stories, news articles and blogs about Letters and Letter Writing from time to time, and we thought it’d be good to share them here. Please feel free to blog or Tweet about them (and us!) as you see fit.
Here’s a story about a Love Letter being found in a bottle on a beach, with a locket of hair in it. It tells of a forlorn French woman who is coming to terms with her lover ending the relationship and returning to his wife. Here is a quick excerpt from the Love Letter:

”These magic moments are pure secret. The secret of life and pleasure without limits. In twenty years, it will still be here, the previous moments of happiness, when life will get dreary, we will be able to tap into these memories to remember what it is to live again.”

Here’s a Blog about the Love Letter story

On the topic of Love Letters, Here’s a Love Letter to an inanimate object, the Golden Gate Bridge…..and a quick excerpt:

” Thank you for your fast track lanes and charming gift shop. Thank you for your film and television appearances and your prominence in Sleep Train and Lexus commercials. Thank you, old friend, for the reassurance that when I hear a bridge breaks, I know it’s not you.”

No compilation of Love Letters would be complete without Bono’s (from U2) Love Letter to America.  Excerpt:

“I don’t speak for the rest of the world. Sometimes I think I do — but as my bandmates will quickly (and loudly) point out, I don’t even speak for one small group of four musicians. But I will venture to say that in the farthest corners of the globe, the president’s words are more than a pop song people want to hear on the radio. They are lifelines.”

And finally, here’s a Love Letter mail during World War II, that finally was delivered….64 years later.  A quick excerpt:

‘Don’t get the idea I am hors de combat with an American nurse holding my hand!’

So perhaps it’s time for each of us to get busy writing that next Love Letter that will make headlines.
