Postcards From Australia
I was thinking about the state of my letterbox. Particularly today when I went out there to check the mail and all I got was a pile of bills and my tax return...which is asking me to pay yet more money. What a sad state of affairs. Those long narrow envelopes with the dreaded window pane harking the arrival of yet another bill has led me to wonder. Where are all the letters? I mean it is called a 'letterbox' isn't it?
So...this has brought me to this idea that perhaps, particularly in this digital and cyber world that we live in, that just maybe other people out there have lonely letter-thirsty letterboxes too. Do you only receive bills and junk mail? Do you only receive the odd card one a year on your birthday? Is the only time the mailman brings something exciting to your door is the time when you've splashed out on something you probably didn't need and he then goes and leaves the parcel out on your doorstep in the rain....or squishes it and ruins it by plugging up your mailbox with it? Yes!?!
Ok, here's my plan.
For all of you who would like something happy and friendly in their mailbox I would like to send you a postcard. All the way from Australia. Just to say 'hi'. And cheer up your letterbox.
To participate just shoot me a quick email at email@example.com with the word 'Postcards' as the subject and let me know your address, then I will pop a special hello in the post from the land Down Under over to you.
I look forward to cheering up your letterbox!
