Dear letterists,

Imagine NASA finding a planet we could live on. But it's very small. Only 10 000 people would be able to live there.

Who would we be sending up there to live and why?

Tag your letter 'thoughts'.

Dear letterists,

You know by now that I love music. Writing is my first love but music definitely my second.

One song that came to mind when I heard the theme for the next few days would be about the galaxy, was "Space Oddity" by David Bowie.

A well known song of course.
So I dare you all, to write your own short, long, silly, funny, serious or crazy song about space!

Perhaps about the stars, the existence of other things, the immense size, the planets.... Anything!

Have fun. That's all that matters. Tag your letter "music".

Let's be in love like this,
Without actually accepting it,
To know each other as is,
As our thoughts fail
And fill our hearts,
We let them wander around
The vicinity of love,
Without actually divulging
Into the deliberate details.
We never have considered the
Conscious efforts that we take
To keep out love.
In the words when we exchange,
The deep melancholy of love.
Unreclaimed, as sets its tone.
We just look around at
Everything and anything
But never near that spot
That comes even remotely
Close to being in love.
The silent pause.
The serene smile,
The selective sigh.
It all falls in its place,
It all performs its function.
All expect us!
As we are afraid!
To accept, so we deny
About be...

Recovery

The pain is overwhelming,
The voices you attempt to ignore,
The scales you practically avoid,
You never asked for this,
You don't even know why,
You just know your the one suffering,
You just cant get away,
The fear of failure,
The fear of death,
You try,
You really do try,
No-one understands,
They see skin and bones,
Ignoring the fire inside,
They blame themselves,
You search for someone to blame,
You seek society, media even the environment around you,
You just see you.

K.

Enlightenment is not discovering something new it is realising what you already are. Each person has the capability and potential to change their life but what holds them back is society. Don't let society control you , lean into the divine essence of life and try to figure out the mysteries in life. Being enlightened gives the insights , the courage and openness to  
actually be the person you already are.

WRITING TOPIC  |  LOVE


We’ve all been blinded by the blanket of emotions that comes from falling down the precipice of union into love. While we only have one word for it, the ancient Greeks in their pursuit of wisdom and self-understanding, found seven different varieties of love that we all experience at some point:

EROS (EROTIC LOVE)
MANIA (OBSESSIVE LOVE)
STORGE (FAMILIAR LOVE)
LUDUS (PLAYFUL LOVE)
PRAGMA (ENDURING LOVE)
PHILAUTIA (SELF LOVE)
PHILIA (AFFECTIONATE LOVE)
AGAPE (SELFLESS LOVE)

Choose one as your topic and use it as the title of your poem or short story.

Tag your letter, "love".

The heart grievously  wounded by the purposeless  disappointments, long waited unreplied Texts, has fervently tried its best to hold itself together, until, it could no longer hold the severity of the excruciating pain. So
It gave up. The wounds were  growing doubly, slowly ripping the heart into pieces of strewn love. Thats when heart came to learn about the real reason behind the doubling of wounds. It was not the fragility of the heart that ripped it, it was what was excessively  nourished within in it. It was furiously trying to force itself out of what it thought was a despising place to live in. The pieces of heart  was  longingly witnessing its loved occupant delightfully  fleeing away...

Is not easy to be me.
Feeling always in the wrong place at the wrong moment.
Time goes on and nothing changes.
I'm stuck.
All i wanted couldn't be anymore.
It's too late.
It's all over.

Dream like mountains
Tall and still
Chase like oceans
Always enthusiastic
Live like forest
Always expanding
Burn your soul with fire
Having intense desire
And always love like sky
Vast and infinite.

The light within you illuminated
the darkest corners of my heart.
There was nothing that I could
do to stop you from breaking the
walls that I built around myself.
And now that you've entered,
I hope you never leave ❤️

Now that you have left ...
My heart has become empty.
But it's heavy.
So heavy as if the weight of whole world is within.
I thought you as the star of my life...
But you ended like a meteorite.
Creating dents and leaving me hollow.

When you meet someone, sometimes you just know it's right. You know it's meant to be and you know that the person right in front of you, is everything you need.
And when you have that feeling,
It's love.

But still don't forget to create your own happiness, because in the end it will be you who has to be happy. Only you can make you happy.

Words of wisdom with love,
FEG

"Orphanage" or "Old Age home"

To start with I have nothing in mind as of now, just these two words...
Both are painful to even think about. Empathy goes to a different level when one thinks about these places.
But when thinking deep about it,
what's better?
Being unloved at the young age and growing to be stronger and independent realising the value of life,
Or feeling ditched by the kids whom we gave our whole life to? And waiting for death.

I am sure both shivers up our spine just by the thought of it. And no I am not into debating on which one is better, none actually can ever be.

But today I would like to request one and all reading this article, that though we can't have enough ...

Dear PenPals,

You probably noticed a new collection of paper named "Galaxy" that is dedicated to all persons who explore the worlds beyond ours.

The letters that will be written  on this collection shall inspire a different exploration - of our better selves and our natural disposition to try and understand the mystery of the human condition...a Galaxy in itself.

Thanks to the many gatekeepers who are persistently writing the letters of the next generation, of messages meant to last into space itself.

Sincerely, signed,
