PFF: Airmail


Postmarked Canberra, dated 9 March 2009.

I love this card, I love the ideas that it conveys to me - messages, letters, postcards, our words taking flight.  Freedom?  Liberation?  A simple card that somehow gives me cause to think.
 
In an odd contrast with what must be the intended message, the card has taken about six weeks to arrive.  Did it walk all the way?  It clearly hasn't arrived by airmail in spite of having ample postage on it.

  1. That is a really beautiful one! It is such an endorsement of getting back to writing and sending paper mail. As you say, pity it took so long to arrive!

  2. Thanks Emm. Yes, I agree, we should try to write more. For me, postcards are ideal, because I don't have to write too much!

  5. And the doves could symbolize peace - which I think is a great symbol for postcrossers everywhere because postcrossing helps brings people from together.

  6. Up, up, and awayyyy! What a thrilling image:) We have carrier pigeons and correspond with a few people in town using them;) It's truly magical each and every time they return or take off! Happy PFF:)

    Happy PFF to you .
    What a wonderful card.
    I really love to see mail .
    In this modern day of rushing and condensing every message down to a quick phone text it is so nice to see the postcard and enjoy words on paper .
    Thank you for sharing this really great postcard today.
    Have a fabulous weekend.
    Happy Trails

  8. Oh, the card probably made it as far as San Francisco after a few days, but the USPS admired it and just couldn't bring themselves to forward it along!

  9. I had to google Canberra, I had no idea where it was. It looks like it's in Australia. Heck, that's no where near the moon, which is where I though this postcard must have been sent from to take 6 weeks!

    I love your description of what this card signifies to you - it was lovely. THank you.

  11. The six-week arrival of the card could be explained by the letters in the photo turning into kiwi-birds instead of doves.
