I am amongst those with a guilty conscience.
I started out as a stalwart member of the postcard exchange at the Fountain Pen Network, but have not sent a single card in a year or more.
I am in possession of dozens of unscribed postcards.
And just today I was thinking about Lenore Tawney's wonderful book, Signs On the Wind, a collection of hand made postcards to friends.

Between the potential loss of the US Postal Service and the accumulation of cards I have scattered among various desks, I do believe I will actively renew my commitment to write more postcards and certainly return postcards to the few scribes who remain loyal and unflaggingly send me a beautiful card for absolutely no reason.
