The theme of "the message in a bottle" is a common one across many forms of romantic literature and movies, much less art forms in general. Typically packed full with unfulfilled desires and dreams, it's a way for someone, anyone, to wonder about what could have been, and possibly rescue the sender from their tedium.
Today, write about someone who's done a slight variation on that. That is, someone who's attached either map coordinates, or some sort of note to lanterns/balloons, and sent them into the sky. When the recipient of such notes manages to find the sender however, they find them desiring no conversation, or general interaction with anyone who may have discovered their letters.
Why might this be? Who would search out someone who took the time to send letters across the world, seemingly at random? What does either party hope to get out of the situation?
