Postcards for the Pandemic Blues


As most of you know, I’ve been a member of since 2008, an amazing project of sending and receiving postcards from around the world, as well as from within this country. Beyond the cards, I have made some lifelong friends, both hosting and traveling to meet up. Communicating with people in far away places, that even as an avid traveler I have never been, teaches me over and over again that we are all connected. It is truly a world peace project. And if you’re currently bored out of your gourd, I highly recommend joining!
In these current challenging times, the postcards I send and receive give me comfort. The feeling that I am not alone, when I am actually more alone than ever in my life. Each card that arrives tells me that we are all going through some version of the same thing. Some are sad and fearful, others are optimistic, funny, and all are full of kindness and best wishes. Each one, in a sense is like a prayer. So I thought it might be nice to share some of the favorites as they arrive, if not only for the cool images.
Todays card is from a guy called Hannes, from Austria. The image is a photograph by Walter Carone, January of 1953. This is Colette, the french writer on her 80th birthday. Birthday cake on fire! I tried to find the story behind it but no luck. She died the following year. I have visited her grave in Paris but never read her books. Now THERE’S something to do while in quarantine! Peace and love to y’all ❤️
