Letters Unsent

I had the idea for “Letters Unsent” before “Packaged Moments“, but completed it afterward. I needed to work through the thoughts about those other moments before I could take on this.

I wanted this piece to explore the emotions of looking back on life and reminiscing about the thoughts not said, the missed opportunities: the letters unsent.

This piece has a wistful feel – not sad or heartbroken – but full of memories.

This one provides a nice contrast to “Packaged Moments” as we think about the things we have said and revealed compared to those we have let pass us by.
