It Is All XStitcher's Fault!
It has been another rough, sleepless night for me.
Instead, I went to the site, looked around, signed up and completed my profile. Then I requested my five postcards to send, reading the profiles of each of the five, all female ranging from 13-years-old to "middle-aged."
Then I found my card box, and saw that I have a few postcards, and began by writing out two of them--one to Taiwan, the other to China. For the other three people, I want to send postcards depicting my area here in Washington. I will send them to three other countries--Russia, Germany, and Finland.
Of course, it is not xstitcher's fault I could not sleep, nor do I really blame her. But I do thank her for introducing me to the site. It has sparked something in me that I have not felt in a very long time.
You see, Postcrossing encourages people to use snail mail to send a handwritten postcard to people around the world. Just like in the olden days, when I was a kid. Back then, we used to call them "pen pals."
