Postcards from Thailand
Yesterday, I was looking for a specific book in one of my closets.
While moving folders, books and magazines, I distinguished curvy characters thru a plastic bag. Could it be?
For years, I have been looking for a set of postcards I bought in Thailand. I have stopped buying trivial, not useful souvenirs during my travels. Postcards are the exception. They are cheap, easy to carry and provide the opportunity to transport you to the place where they were bought. I usually stick them somewhere around the house or office.
Now, this wasn’t a ‘regular’ postcard set. They are more a splash of pictures, sketches and words, something artists call a collage. The unstructured flow of Thai scenes and symbols caught my heart since the moment I saw them at a 7 Eleven stand (yes, those exist in Thailand). I bought a bunch of them with the purposes of creating a project once at home.
The bad news is that I couldn’t remember where I place the postcards once I arrived. I figured they were somewhere in the garage but, with my allergy problems, I am not the happiest person looking thru dusty, smelly boxes.
To my surprise, the postcards have been in front of me all this time. When I saw them, I felt the same emotion I felt the first time I saw them. Well, a different emotion since I was able to have a vivid daydreaming about Thailand, a country so close to my heart.
I had to share these postcards with you. I am sure you are going to love them.
Here they are. Enjoy!
