Stumbling Into The Future

While reading Daniel Gilbert’s excellent Stumbling on Happiness over the weekend, I stumbled upon these lovely lines from Shakespeare’s Macbeth, which Gilbert chose to include at the start of Chapter 6:

Thy letters have transported me beyond
This ignorant present, and I feel now
The future in the instant.

I love how much energy and action is wrapped up in just these few short lines. If you’re familiar with the play…

What People Are Saying…

Put your heart in the write place with these books of 12 fold-and-mail-style letters that use clever prompts like: I knew you were the one for me when… What I love about us… It makes composing meaningful missives a whole lot easier. My favorite is Letters to My Love. I’ve been telling people this for years: What a partner wants to know is how you really feel. This will make him or her swoon!

O Magazine

Letters To My Future Self is a marvelously designed little book that contains self-sealing letters and prompts. The whole collection is incredibly well done. If you’re not inclined to maintain a full-fledged journal, this may be a great way to do a letter per week, or a letter per month, and get some words on paper. Ana Reinert

The Well-Appointed Desk

It’s simple enough to not be too cheesy, less of a commitment than a diary, and a pretty format and design to make you want to keep it laying around. I think back to what I would have written on these pages five years ago and how different they would be now. It will be really nice to open up these letters in a few years and see how far I’ve come.

Maker + Writer + Possibility Seeker

Lea Redmond teamed up with Chronicle Books in 2014 to create the Letters To My series. Says Lea, “I had a teacher in 9th grade that asked us to each write and address a letter to ourselves. At the end of senior year, she returned our letters to us. I remember it being really cool to get a letter from my past self. But I’m sorry to say I soon lost the letter and now have no memory of what I wrote. Thankfully, these keepsake books help keep memories like these safe and sound!”
