Hello everybody. I am a native Texan currently roaming around the western half of my state. I sometimes call San Antonio home, sometimes Amarillo, sometimes the road. I still work abroad occasionally and am thus away for extended periods of time: but Texas is always home.
I have no particular requests for the picture side of a post card. What you choose to send me is a reflection of you and tells me a little something about you. I don't care if the card arrives quickly or not. If, for example, it takes a card 34 days to arrive from Shanghai I just try to imagine the journey the postcard must have endured. And if the card arrives with bent corners and scratches and faded ink, well, that just adds that much more character and soul to the message. I think to my self, "Welcome weary traveler. You have made it to your destination. You have done your job."
I use modern communications devices but I believe strongly in preserving the tradition and skill of actually writing - with a pen on paper - and sending that object through the post to someone distant. I believe strongly in doing all we can to not let the trends and fashions of the 21st Century crush all the methods and traditions of the past. So your words in your handwriting and the journey your postcard takes are the things important to me.
Just because you wander, it doesn't mean you're lost. It's the journey, not the destination.
