THANK YOU for all the years you have virtually traveled with me. I am grateful for the support you have shown by reading my stories, enjoying my photos, and attending my travel presentations.
Until supplies run out (I have hundreds) I am sending a postcard to each of my readers who asks. They are from all over the world, and all around the United States. I will be hand-writing 5 per day until I run out, on a first-asking, first-receiving basis. I am healthy, and holed up with some essential supplies, and wanted to find some extra way to connect with my readers out there who may also feel “stuck” during this COVID-19 pandemic.
Let me send you a postcard, with some handwritten words of encouragement, love, and hope.
I ALSO have a couple tiny souvenirs from my travels that will be sent at random to readers who ask for a postcard. (Maybe when I run out of postcards I’ll start sending letters!)
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (write “POSTCARD” in the subject line). I will need a name & address. And yes, you can choose to have the postcard sent to a loved one instead, but please only one card per reader wherever you have it sent, so that as many of you as possible can receive one.
We are ALL in this together.
Yours in Words and Travel,
P.S. Currently all U.S. postal mail is operating normally. While I remain healthy and symptom-free, staying vigilant particularly if you are immune-compromised is always smart thinking. The current guidelines for COVID-19 state that the virus can live on paper for up to 5 days. My personal routine for receiving mail is to collect it twice a week, leave it sit for 5 days, then open. (I’m a bit of an overachiever though, so just remember to wash your hands after handling any outside mail, or packages!)
