Nope! So I made up a new rule. I will save any magazine for no longer then 3 months. When the 3 months have past I scan the contents and tear out the articles I want to save and through away what's left of the beautiful thick glossy paper.
So yesterday when I sat on the living room floor surrounded by tons of paper my eye spotted an article in which the writer wondered what ever happened to the charm of receiving handwritten postcards. Now I love the internet (way too much according to my dear husband to be) and I truly love receiving your comments and e-mails but ... I do really miss the excitement of running to the mailbox hoping to find a letter or postcard inside.
Now it so happened that the article mentioned a website where you can register, receive random addresses of people you do not know from all over the world to whom you can send a postcard to and better yet ... receive one (or two, or three or ...) as well. HHHhhmmm ... would that be something for me? There was only one way to find out. So I did register, requested some addresses (no more than 5 at one time ?!) and today send a postcard to India, France, Finland and the US.
Now the waiting begins ...
