Words have the power to change us, mold us, break us, and renew us. Often we become the words that people say because we see ourselves through them. Through letters, passed down and personal, l have saved the words that left an impression on my life. Whether it is my mother’s signature, my grandmother’s recipes, or newspaper clippings saved by my great-grandmother, each person has given me a piece of themselves – through their time, their words, and their ability to read between the lines of life. Much like a letter, a piece of home and timelessness cannot be replaced.
