Lately I’ve been trying to get my creative juices following so crafting, reading and internet searching. I came across an idea that appealed to me both as a blogger and a writer. What if we came across a letter from our great grandmother, grandfather or anyone. Wouldn’t you be interested in what their typical day was like? What they were currently reading? Music that got them moving or movies/shows they saw or where anticipating. Also the events and news around them at the time and their opinions on these topics.
I would enjoy curling up with an old letter and being taken back to a different time. I know I’d search for any music or books mentioned to see if still available. Would the letter make me appreciate what I have now or would it make me sad at what I missed?
The best part is that we can be that ancestor for someone! We can put pen to paper and write about what is happening in our lives today. It doesn’t have to be earth shattering, it just has to be real and heart felt. So, think about what you want to share and what is important to you now. Wouldn’t it be cool to think of someone opening your envelope in even 50 years and learning a bit more about you and the world at the time? We have the chance to be someone inspiration – think about it.
