Stevie Wonder: Letters are the most personal and intense form of communication

by Mr. Sheehy

A few highlight lines from this gem of a note from Stevie Wonder:

I feel that next to being actually physically touched by someone, reading a letter is the most personal and intense form of communication that there is.

Reading a letter puts me on a total one-to-one relationship with the person who the letter is from. There is no interruption for me, like when you talk to someone in a room with other people—it inhibits the person communicating.

The ideas in letters that move me most are the ones that are the most honest.
