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.
When I read the many letters of expression from across the world I am reminded of a restful mind on a hot summer day - where two heads of common hopes can rest upon one another. We are in this network together, an
Taking time to write. Thanks to everyone who shares letters of the next generation.
Welcome new lettrs users,
As The Head Lettrist of lettrs I wish you a warm welcome. Like hot coffee in the morning, you'll find that lettrs is the investment you make when you want a moment for yourself.
The thing about words is that they reward you even when you don't realize it. Someone else reads the letter you wrote and it inspires them to reach for more, or your words on the page become therapy lifting a large burden off your shoulders.
Be indelible. Write lettrs.
-the head lettrist
If we think about life without the abundance of words then we are unable to understand and describe the abundance of life.
And what a shame that would be...
Often I have wondered about the meaning of "Lettrs" about the meaning of being "Indelible". After a constant use of the "Lettrs" application, of sharing emotions, ideas and thoughts, I discover that: "Lettrs" says the words that the lips don't dare and with the writing; cultures, countries, traditions, all them have the same value by to give a magical sense to the words.
Across the writing we find those words: which encourage; which ask; which intrigue; which discover. "Lettrs" is impregnated with emotions, with light, with colors and aromas, and why not, also of forgetfulness and of life. The words in "Lettrs" are similar to a Phoenix's bird, which flies with burning wings.
In "Lettrs" ...
The lettrs penpal network has now reached over 22 million different connections, like a wave that rolls right over you. Do find time to reach out to a penpal this week. That deeper connection is just around the corner.
Thanks for all the energy and expression over the years.
I read the book called "The Shallows" by Nicholas Carr and wondered if we can ever escape the shallows of social media again. Mr Carr predicted the governance of feelings, minds, emotions and even cultures through a cacophony of never ending disposable tweets and chats, inviting us all to perpetual reflex as a replacement for reflection. He suggested we would write less, but also think less, at the same time - and he predicted the shallows 5 years ago.
Our daily mental routine of 2017 sees a faster, shorter and infinite supply of the tedious and the superfluous. The sensational has replaced the substantial. Perhaps it's up to us, alone and even lonely, where the quiet mind must force i...
Dear Drew Bartkiewicz,
Thank you Drew and a happy holiday to all.
America, God shed his grace on thee
To the Aspirations of Independent People,
When we recognize the independence of America we also acknowledge that we Americans are not alone in the quest for personal freedoms. Having visited 26 countries in my life I do believe that the natural state of any human being is one of liberty and love. And the absence of either makes us always want even more what we do not have. Liberty is a luxury as much as it is a basic necessity.
And so I wish my country happy birthday not in isolation but with the open invitation for any citizen of the world to fight for liberty and love, as best they can, however they can. That personal act in itself makes the spirit of America and freedom not the domain...
Thank you kindly for inventing the iPhone 10 years ago. Since then you have brought information to my fingertips that goes beyond the functional, to the delightful.
When the iPhone was first introduced it had many naysayers who believed that nothing would replace desktop interaction with screen interaction on such a small device. But they were wrong! Much like the naysayers are wrong that you could not create a letter writing and penpal network that is 100% mobile and in fact brings verified iPhone autographs to a new generation of young fans. So thanks Apple, for the iPhone vision as our global device for social autographs and fanmail of the next generation. Your iPhone ha...

Dear Drew Bartkiewicz,
Hello Sir! I'm so delighted looking at your likes on my letters . Thank you so much for sparing your precious time in reading my posts. Thanks a ton for your support.
Dear lettrs Staff,
I admire your commitment towards your job. You have never failed to respond to any of my letters. You've been ever willing to solve any issue I have brought to your notice. I appreciate your kindness. May the Lord bless each one of you working towards making this place a home away from home for people like me. Thank you!
My motivation has always been the possible more than the probable.
I have seen too many tiny miracles in my midst to think otherwise.
I've always been a "write it out" person.
But I got so lost in a world of " Say it out before it's too late. "
Ever been judged for sharing your thoughts on how everything made you feel that you were left with no option but to remain silent?
Ever been labeled as a "complicated person" because you feel everything so intensly that you stopped opening up to people?
My lungs were collapsing from the growing pressure of all the words that I wasn't saying.
I've been searching for a place where I could hear all the words that have been hiding in the darkest corners of my soul.
I guess I've finally found a place where my thoughts don't mind being exposed.
Heartbreak, tragedy, pain were ...
I pen this letter this morning with an upbeat heart, a spirited keypad and a penpal network like none other in the world. We are listening!
Thanks to the many comments I received on how to make lettrs lighter, faster and easier for powering letters meant to last forever.
Your friend in lettrs,
I find myself addicted to lettrs because I am addicted to reading about the complexity and the beauty of the human condition on this app.
lettrs is a unique messaging platform for people of consequence, writing about the trials and the joys of living in a modern society.
This special place invites people to be "an original"- and yet at the same time to be connected to the vast tapestry of words happening across the world. Perhaps one day in the future people will look back at this mark in time as the beginning, of letters as a second language.
I am proud to be a part of this.
If I counted the hours that my husband has dedicated to this revolution in communications it would add up to five years of his life in the pursuit of messages that actually matter.
He falls asleep at night with an iPhone in his hand to listen, learn and improve a tiny lettrs place where the average person dedicates 3.5 minutes to letters for their own lives.
The power of the pen! We fell in love with letters and now hope people find love through letters of their own.
