Sir, more than kisses, letters mingle souls; for, thus friends absent speak.
It does me good to write a letter which is not a response to a demand, a gratuitous letter, so to speak, which has accumulated in me like the waters of a reservoir.
A Letter is a Joy of Earth -
It is denied the Gods.
Last year we hosted the Letter Cafe during the West Cork Literary Festival (July 7th to 13th) which was a hugely popular event designed to encourage more people to write letters and connect with loved ones.
The Literary Festival provided all the materials needed for enjoyable letter-writing - nice pens, smooth paper,envelopes and even stamps. We had a little post box in the Cafe and they collected the letters every evening and mailed them off around the world. It was far more successful than we thought it would be - the opening attracted over 70 people and every day about 25 letters were mailed.
Here is one customer's report...
This year it will all be happening again, so call in to Organico if you are around either during the festival or later in July (last year we kept on giving out pens and paper for the rest of the month!)
