Wow — that is so beautiful… what an awesome way to connect with people. My first response was, hey, I’d love to do something like that. (Which was followed with, but how would I ever find anyone willing to send me their address…) I have a friend in NYC, Matt Stillman, who setup a chair and table in Union Square, offering Creative Approaches to What You Have Been Thinking About — and a jar (with a not to take what you need, and give what you can)… and loved his stories of what people would open up to him about.
There is something about our quest to connect with one another… I think quite a lot of activity online is searching for a bit of that connection, although I’ve never found it to be as meaningful as a close conversation with a good friend.
It sounds amazing how you’re just reaching out to people with letters… I’d love to hear more!
