I collect postcards. I am an artist. This blog showcases both hobbies.

a dying breed

Went to buy postcard stamps today and the postal clerk said "wow postcard stamps? Let me see if we have any.... I haven't seen anyone mail a postcard in a very long time, didn't know people did that anymore. Kind of like pen pals."

I explained I did a post card exchange as I was a collector.

Sad that it is a dying hobby. I love the efficiency of email and the internet but I find art, tradition, ritual in writing and sending post cards...let alone of course I collect them because I, well, do.

Glad for postcrossing.com so that my simple hobby can flourish.
