Postcard Party!

October 1, 2013

The South  Side Letter Writing Club is at it again!  Last October, a group of letter writers from Chicago and a varied group of internet/real-life connected friends participated in a challenge to send 31 postcards in 31 days.  If you’ve not been in the habit of sitting down and writing letters with paper and pen, a postcard might just be the right size to kick-start that habit.  Now, I believe that meaningful communication can happen over a variety of media.  I have a couple of friends that I send handwritten letters to and they send emails back.  This works well for us.  I don’t send a letter because I expect a letter to show up in my mailbox.  I send letters because I hope that finding something in your mailbox that isn’t a bill brings a smile and a quiet moment to read news or encouragement from far away (or just across town).  I send letters because I love the physical act of writing and my house can only hold so much of it.  I send letters because I want to show the people in my life that I am thinking of them and this is one way I know how.

Do you want a postcard?  Send me your address – nectaryne AT namingmountains DOT com – or message me privately if you already have that info.

Want to add some intentional correspondence to your life?  Search 31 Postcards on fb or just sit down with that pen and start writing!  The USPS website says very clearly , “USPS will continue normal operations if the federal government shuts down.”
