Throwing it back to Snail Mail, Post Crossing

Concluded a great Peloton ride this morning, while catching up on email, I stumbled upon two articles from the New York Times that drove me back to my site.

Articles: 

This year indeed has brought forth ebbs and flows, or waves. From being promoted last fall, annual incentive paid two days before the office closed in March, entered a city lockdown, hiding away in quarantine, and now the ultimate lull summer vacation (aka furlough). 

I’ve always been an advocate for handwritten notes, cards, and good ole snail mail. I own 100’s of items that I could mail on a dime; greeting cards, custom stationery, postcards, indeed never a shortage of things I could send. In reading the NYT article, the comments highlighted a website I had not heard of.

PostCrossing.com enables individuals around the world to connect via postcards. It brought back a feeling of nostalgia for pen pals I had through schooling. 

How does Post Crossing work?  

Giving it a shot! 

Here are my first five outbound postcards 

  • Australia
  • Germany
  • Lithuania
  • Poland
  • Russian Federation

In a time of social distancing and working through the waves of feelings, very cool to stumble upon a new way of connecting with the world.
