Postcard #68: Painter of Light


Sent via postcrossing to plp

I hope I never reach a point when I would rather get an unadulterated postcard than exchange words however vapid with another human being.  I will be happy to hear why postcards without any correspondence  possess value.  Postcards...without writing being sent in envelopes.  What's the point.  If you want a bunch of images on card stock...just surf the net an put them on shutterfly and be done with it.  Cut out the middleman.  But until then...send me your cards and your writings.

Postcard #66: Resignations


This is the first postcrossing card that the person has specifically asked for me to mail the postcard in an envelope.  I still don't know how I feel about that.  Seems a little...strange. Like being asked to go on a trip but I would have to wear a blindfold until I reached my destination. Godspeed little postcard.  This one is heading to Russia.

In case anyone thought I was making this up or I lean too much on hyperbole:



God Bless the US Postal Service and Red Plum mass mailing services. I am going to save the actual conversation I had with the Postal Service worker for another postcard.
