Do you still believe in postcards?
I ask this question now because as of late, I’ve been travelling a lot. As of late, my niece Machiko Skye has been learning to write. With a command of language and comprehension beyond her years, she never fails to ask for a postcard whenever she would hear about my departures.
My Paris trip definitely amped up my creativity. The City of Lights were not short of picturesque postcards. I immediately sent her a couple, and if it weren’t for the faulty postal service in the Philippines, it would have arrived before I came home.
During my NJ visit, Machiko wrote letters for her cousins.
The NJ kids enjoyed it so much, we actually had a letter writing day just so they can reply to her! And she was more than happy to read them!
The advent of technology is phasing out the relevance of stamps and mail couriers, but there really is no better way of practicing handwriting, communication and interpersonal skills more than letter writing. I’m very blessed to have so many of my family still in love with old school pen and paper. Even the little Jared Franco.
So… do you still believe in postcards?
