Postcards are timeless in the sense that they have not gone out of style. Years ago when I worked in the travel industry I would send my grandfather a postcard from every destination I traveled to. When he passed away, there in his bedroom was a box which contained all of the postcards I had sent him over the years. I didn’t realize it when I was sending the postcards what they would mean to him and to our relationship. In fact, I was blown away when I learned he had saved them over the years. I didn’t know it back then, but I was creating memories.
