Remember a time before social media when we actually used to write letters? Ya, write! There was such a time, oh so long ago.
Nowadays though, I feel the pressure of a word limit on my thoughts. And like that wasn’t enough. it also has to be perfectly worded before it is spewed onto the poor, unsuspecting world, via hashtags of course. But don’t get me wrong, I do adore Twitter, I really do. Where else could I do my controlled ranting?
Now back to my point, and of course there is one, writing letters and postcards. Whatever happened to that glorious habit?
Nobody has the time or the inclination anymore, I am told. Sure, but not @appleglutton (look her up on twitter, will you?). This lovely girl, takes the time out of her day to snail mail handwritten postcards to strangers (at no cost to you, may I add) just because she wants to make the world a happier place.
Its as simple as that.
And it really did make me happy when I recieved that post card from her. Right from seeing a post mans face (yea, three cheers to this guy still making a living) to the flutter of butterfly wings that I felt when I read her words on a card. I must have read it a few hundred times. Oh irreplaceble joy!
In a time when post means nothing more than ‘posting’ a status update or a virtual ramble on facebook or twitter, here’s a girl who posts, old school style. At the Post office, you adorable fool.
Thank you @appleglutton for making the world a happier place, one postcard at a time.
P.S: Don’t judge my scrubby nails in the picture. Wait, whats my excuse? oh ya, got no time for that manicure buddy.
