Postcard Writing: To Someone In Particular (And To Anyone Else Who May Be Reading)
2. I'm reminded of a ridiculous Soviet era- romantic comedy, The Glass Bottom Boat, in which Doris Day calls her answering machine and leaves cryptic messages for her dog, Vladimir. Write your post cards as though you are "not writing state secrets," and provide a little entertainment for the powers that be!
3. Make up a story, perhaps based on the image on the front of the post card, practicing economical poesy or prose by fitting it entirely onto that little square!
4. Be bold with your words of good cheer! Perhaps someone else will see them and be cheered by them too! You know how watching the opening scenes of Love Actually makes you feel? That's what it's like. It's being cheered by other people's "hello's" and "I love you's" too! https://youtu.be/bAD2_MVMUlE
There's the art of eavesdropping, and there's the art of being eavesdropped. The enterprising postcard-writer aspires to be worthy of the eavesdropper, or the eavesreader, as it were.
