No matter how little time you spend contemplating the possibly few words you mark down—the simplicity of this gift does not attenuate the power of its effect—I invite you to pick up a postcard and embrace this rudimentary mode of communicating. Let your message embody the love and spontaneity that can manifest from such a delightful and rustic connection. The effect of a postcard is to refresh our senses away from the specious values of our contemporary realities, and the burdens of our digilife.

Teaching work coming soon.
