Post cards are my very favourite kind of handwritten mail. The process of sending them is what I like most. Between us, I think picking out the post cards is the best part of the trip. Twirling the racks and deliberating over images that reflect what I’ve been up to, which of these images should go into the mail for what person. All that fun before you even get to writing a special note to your loved ones! Post cards lack immediacy and electronic shareability, but that’s not a downfall – that’s the point.
Don’t take my word for it, take my friend Debra’s. She has an article about them in The Star’s travel section today!
