Today was a great day because I received this awesome postcard from dear friend, writer, and best person in the world to have breakfast with: Sean. It is about 50 years old and he bought it in one of those cool antique/junk shops in Madrid. Oh how I love receiving snail-mail!
It’s a Luftansa postcard from 1965, and from what it looks like, it was probably one of those freebee promotional flight postcards. What makes it even cooler is that at the back, there is a detail handwritten by the person who actually picked-up the card 50 years ago. He got it, dated it, wrote his destination on it, and then never sent it. Interesting choice by the way, Sean.
I wonder who he/she was? I wonder who he/she bought it for? I wonder why it was never sent, I wonder how it ended-up in a junk shop, I wonder what he/she would say if he/she found out that the postcard was sent to some Indian girl in Dubai. So awesome. Also, notice how they didn’t have closed overhead baggage compartments back in 1965.
Anyhoo. Muchísimas gracias, Sean!
In case it wasn’t clear enough: I want more post! I will even return the gesture, I promise. Anyone want my P.O.Box? (Yes, Ive been deprived of snail-mail for way too long.)
