What Power

"Never underestimate the power of a well-written letter."

I was watching "The Jane Austen Book Club" on the telly and one of the characters said this line and I couldn't agree more.

How many times has a heartfelt letter taken a relationship of yours to the next level, or made you giddy with pride, or compelled you to undeniable attraction or bring you unspeakable joy, or seer you with unwarranted pain or given you that long-awaited closure?

Ah words! What power you wield.
