The mail service is going to hell in a hand-basket due to the power of the internet – plus the age old problem of getting a letter, even if you have managed to write one, down to the letter-box. This is the way of the world no doubt, but I want to put in a word for post-cards. I have always loved getting them and sending them. They are quick to write, (though you still have to get them into the box), and so you can send love and thoughts, or receive same, without too much trouble. My mantle-piece always has a good array of cards I have received, and I keep a whole heap in the filing cabinet, awaiting an opportunity to send as well.
In the spirit of buttons and bread, postcards are small items we can make use of to keep connection, convey friendship and stay in touch. If you can, send one this week!
(I think you can see close-ups of the pictures this week, and my comments about each photo if you click on the picture. Hope so anyway…)
