Love Letters From Boston: The Choreography of Correspondence is a pop-up style art project built to encourage the spread of love, gratitude and generosity. The idea originated this winter when, scrolling through Instagram, I came across with a desk in a Kimpton Hotel lobby where guests could send Valentines to loved ones. As I continued through my social media that day, with post-election chaos, distrust and fear rearing its head ugly head at every turn, I kept coming back to this idea of sending love and gratitude through the mail. The more I talked about it the more I knew that Boston, a city that stands strong and proud in the face of everything thrown in its way, is the perfect place to begin this project.
You can take a moment to pen a quick note or settle in for some serious crafting. Letters can be to someone you already know and love. I also encourage you to think about your community and what it is that makes it what it is. Those people and institutions need some love too, whether it’s the local coffee shop that starts your day with a smile because they always know your name, the school that goes above and beyond for their students and families or the artist whose work gives the community hope.
Even if it seems small, think of the ripples that one little letter can make. Not just to those who actually touch the letter itself, but since creativity is known to make you 25% happier both sender and receiver may go out and say thank you or I love you to three people they wouldn't have otherwise, which might send even one of those people out to do the same... Multiply that by every person here and the impact is endless. Mail that isn’t asking for your money makes everyone’s day better. Throw in some creativity and gratitude and it's magic!
