If you want to check up on someone, chat, touch base or just hear someone’s voice, you make a phone call, right?
If you need to send your flight itinerary, confirm dates and times for meetings, or send an e-vite — there’s e-mail.
If you want to send a quick message: “I’m home”, “Just left. On my way.”, “At the grocery store”, “Congratulations” — there’s texting.
If you want to invite your friends to experience an event with you — you post a photo album on fb.
But some news just warrants a postcard. I’ll let you experience the surprise of our lives when we read the following message from my traveling mother.
While I’m gone for the month of June, I wish I could send you an old-fashioned postcard with the message “enjoying the sights — wish you were here.”
I have some traveling to do and I won’t be in my chair that swivels and rocks. Blogging is just not the same from a laptop at a hotel or as a guest in someone’s home. I plan to be back around the first of July. I will miss you and want you to know each of you will be in my thoughts. You deserve my full attention in what you post and comment…and, I’m afraid my attention will be too sporadic to read, comment, post. So I will let you know in advance that I will be absent for the month of June. May I ask you a favor? If you think of it, and think I’m missing something big (I know, all your posts are BIG), please send me an e-mail. I would love to hear you SHOUT “I JUST GOT FP’d” or ” ___ JUST GOT FP’d!”
