The month is February, the month of the heart. The year is 2021, the year after one defined by masked and socially-distanced relationships, isolation, and airwaves pummeled with heated and, often, toxic political debate. The voice of award-winning author, Anne-Marie Oomen, is like a beacon of light piercing a misty fog of uncertainty.
Write a love letter to water, she suggests.
As one who has always measured herself on results, my immediate thought is, what would I do with it? But perhaps “doing” is not the main reason to compose such a letter. After a year without exchanging hugs, sharing a meal, or even creating meaningful memories with those I care deeply about, perhaps writing a love letter is exactly what I need to start this new year. Perhaps tapping the intimate language of love for something as essential yet non-threatening as water is the perfect place to prepare for a life of meaningful communication post-pandemic.
Would you like to join me?
If the thought of creating art from the heart feels a bit intimidating and you’re not sure how to begin, listen to Anne-Marie’s suggestions. Whether you write a love letter to water, tell a story, draw a picture, choreograph a dance, pen a poem, take a photograph, or compose a song, I hope you have as much fun as I intend to do. And if you feel like sharing your creative masterpiece, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Who knows where the conversation might take us?
