When I took in that the letters to Nancy Pelosi were to be hand-written, I was surprised and wondered if my hand could remember how to write, I do it so rarely anymore, and then, the experience turned out to be most pleasurable, and I realize there is no "record" of it.
It is what it is. I carefully chose the card on which to write, and actually wrote different words than I expected to. There was something about the pen in my hand and the picture on the card that shifted something in me. I was clear, gentle, calm.
I think it is important that we hand-write at times. It is so easy to spill out copies on the computer, and print, and store and file, and this was much more pleasurable than that. I liked placing a stamp on the envelope, a stamp of love.
Let us continue to write hand-written letters to our representatives, rather than just quickly signing with Move On, or whoever it is requesting our name in the moment.
On that note, you can mail your hand-written letter directly to Nancy Pelosi. Cindy Sheehan is making a statement that does not need to be yours.
Happy holding a pen in your hand, as I obviously am not doing in this moment.
