Words to your future self.
“A letter always seemed to me like immortality,” wrote Emily Dickinson, about the power of words to live far into the future.
Amidst this uncertain time, pick up your pen and write with certainty. Write a letter to your future self. At age 36, or 62, or 97, what do you want to remember about your life now? Your experience of the 2020 pandemic? What do you want to preserve? To never forget?
In addition to publishing this letter on Write the World, you might like to save a copy, seal it in an envelope and keep it somewhere safe to be opened by your future self.
