Ted Talk Thursday #12| Hannah Brencher: Love letters to strangers

Happy Thursday!

It’s almost the weekend and I’m sharing a short, yet sweet talk with you today.

Who doesn’t enjoy the thoughtfulness and intimacy in a hand-written letter?

I wish more of us still wrote letters to each other though I understand that things have changed. I hope that you enjoy this talk as much as I have.

Did anyone used to have a pen-pal when they were younger?

  1. Absolutely. I had a couple of pen pals. One in Italy and one in Tasmania. I loved getting letters in the mail, the anticipation, reading them, writing back, even collecting the stamps. A dying (or dead) art. Kinda sad really but that’s progress I guess!

    1. All for progress. Agreed. Though who doesn’t love the idea of reading something hand-written, seeing where they’ve crossed words out or pressed on the page. It’s so personal and very special 🙂 A Tasmanian pen pal! Awesome…

  2. I do love a hand written letter. I still write them. I’m obsessed with stationary and fountain pens! I had a French pen pal in high school. She came in very handy with my French language studies! Now I have a pen pal in London.

    1. I love that you’re into stationary as well! Nothing like a new fancy pen, notebook or some other sticky note to get me excited 🙂 It’s admirable that you still have a pen pal!


  3. What a great TED Talk. I do think we have forgotten the art of letter writing. I used to do it a lot when I was younger. I too had pen pals. Sadly, I write less letters because I used to write to my grandparents but they all passed away some years ago. I love the idea of writing to strangers to help. Thanks for sharing
