Panim el Panim (Face to Face)

I’ve decided to start writing letters to others, hand written snail mail USPS. I figure it’s a lost art, and people love from what I hear getting cards and letters in the mail 😉

Some days there are times when I really don’t have much to say, and that’s OK because only so much can be conveyed with typed font or a written letter.

A set of verses that I love speaking to the heart of how I feel when wishing to communicate with others:

I have much to write you, but I don’t want to write with pen and ink; however, I am hoping to see you very soon, and we will speak face to face.

Shalom to you. Your friends send you their greetings. Greet each of our friends by name.

3 John 1: 13-14 (Complete Jewish Bible)

Real face time as I put it, face to face not digitally but the real raw deal. The small facial expressions and sighs, the breaths, the eyes, the brows, the creases in the face, the hand gestures…

(and I have High Functioning Autism, and have only just recently been seeing these things)

Have you spoke Panim el Panim to someone lately? You’d be surprised how sparse that has become, and how warm a response most will give you.
