This particular postcard from Taiwan has sentimental value because my mom sent it to me several years ago while she was on vacation there. And now, of course, I’m sharing it with all of my blog visitors. I don’t think it’s a common thing nowadays for parents to send their kids postcards. It’s all about the convenience of phone calls and emails–immediate yet also ephemeral. I’m not someone who likes clutter, but I must admit, there is something to be said for having something tangible.
