One of the biggest themes in the book “Seeing Home” is the power of writing letters.
Ed’s Mom wrote letters to famous players in an effort to help lift him from his depression after he was struck blind.
Ed did the same when he was trying to make connections to start his career.
In both cases, it worked. For the cost of a stamp, their worlds changed.
Letter writing has become a lost art. Fan letters, especially, have become rare. Most people today communicate with their favorite celebrities by posting on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
That’s why it was so nice to read a recent story about a fan letter that one of Saturday Night Live’s newest cast members got in the mail. It was delivered on Presidential stationery.
