I Still Write Postcards
Everyone loves to receive them in the mail! It never ceases to bring a smile. They still exist! The message needn't be long. A simple one will do.
My nieces & nephews enjoy receiving postcards from my travels. I just tell them something funny...like I rode a camel or saw a Komodo Dragon, then I request that they find me on a map. You'd be surprised how little kids know about our planets geography.
Send a scenic sentiment from a far away place. One of my favorites is "The scenery is here, wish you were beautiful." I only use it once per person but it sends a chuckle.
Purchasing postcards & postage can be an adventure in itself. Ever been to foreign post offices? Often times the cards allow me to support a small vendor in someway which always makes me feel good.
Next time you see that cool postcard buy a few. They often sell stamps at the same place. Sit down with a cup of coffee or a beer & share your day. It's often takes a long time to reach the recipient so feel free to mail it at the PO Box in the airport when you fly home.
